The Institute for Imaging & Analytical Technologies (I²AT) is a university-wide research institute and core facility which meets MSU's missions in research, teaching and service by facilitating inter- and multi-disciplinary research, education and outreach in the life and materials sciences. I²AT houses major research instrumentation that is available to faculty, staff, students, and outside users. Instrumentation includes technologies for diverse microscopy (light, confocal, atomic force, and electron) and microanalysis (e.g. X-ray diffraction) applications, in addition to magnetic resonance imaging used in areas of veterinary medicine, cognitive science and medical systems. These technologies provide MSU, the State of Mississippi and the local community with state-of-the-art resources that facilitate scholarly research, spawn competitive funding, foster project completion, enable high-quality undergraduate and graduate education, enhance impact of outreach, and promote economic development. I²AT as a university-level research institute, is organized with university-wide responsibilities, and is administered out of MSU's Office of Research and Economic Development.


I²AT is housed at two separate locations. The majority of I²AT's microscopy and microanalysis capabilities are housed at I²AT East, located on the MSU campus in the basement of Clay Lyle building. The radiological imaging technologies (MRI, CT, ultrasound, linear accelerator) are housed at I²AT West, located at the intersection of Highway 182 and Stark Road in Starkville.
