The Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, usually referred to as just the "Martinos Center," is a major hub of neuropsychological research and nuclear magnetic resonance research and development in Boston. The center has two sites, one in the Massachusetts General Hospital East Campus in the Charlestown Navy Yard, and another at MIT. The center is a member or collaborator with NCRR (and BIRN), NIDA, NIBIB, National Cancer Institute, NINDS, NCCAM, ONDCP, and The MIND Institute. The center also has a strategic partnership with Siemens Medical Solutions. It is also a Harvard Catalyst site.

There are 8 MRI scanning bays used primarily for research, including a seven Tesla magnet for human radiography and a combined PET-MRI. In addition, the center serves as a development site for new Siemens equipment, such as the 32 channel and 128 channel MRI coils.
