Flywheel Presents Its Data Platform at Center for Magnetic Resonance Research's Workshop

MINNEAPOLIS, October 6—Flywheel Exchange, LLC, the scientific data management software company, sponsored and attended the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research’s Workshop on High and Ultra-High Field Imaging, held October 1-3, 2015.

At the workshop, members of the Flywheel team presented its data management platform to imaging-focused researchers from around the globe.
