The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), recently executed its first master research service agreement with local medical imaging organization Desert Radiology. The agreement, which is renewable for up to four years, will provide cost-effective imaging analysis services to subjects participating in UNLV research and help generate new business for Desert Radiology.
"We're pleased to work together with UNLV to provide quality diagnostics," said Matthew Grimes, chief operating officer of Desert Radiology. "This new partnership reinforces Desert Radiology's ongoing commitment and support of the Southern Nevada community."
The partnership is currently supporting studies in the UNLV Schools of Allied Health Sciences and Medicine that require radiological imaging the campus isn't equipped to provide. One early-stage project will examine the effectiveness of a particular physical therapy regimen in children by analyzing imaging data. Desert Radiology's imaging services are anticipated to support additional studies in other UNLV colleges and schools as well.
"This new agreement furthers our efforts to build new relationships and expand UNLV's impact in the community," said Zach Miles, UNLV associate vice president for economic development. "We're excited by the promise this partnership holds with respect to fueling new research, funding, and faculty recruitment opportunities."
