The primary goal of the Imaging Laboratory is to provide MDRC researchers with expert consultation, training and support for routine and advanced microscopy and image analysis techniques.

Each project begins with a consultation between the investigator and either Drs. Antonetti or Lentz to discuss the investigator’s needs and objectives.

The investigator fills out a request for service form, which provides a brief description of the project, its relevance to the Center, and sources of funding supporting the work. This form requires a signature indicating approval of the Core Director, or in his absence, the Laboratory Director, before work can begin.

The Imaging Laboratory provides:

  • Consultation and Advice on Microscopy and Immunohistochemistry
  • Cryosection Service
  • Confocal Microscopy
  • Temporary Image Storage
  • Image Analysis
  • Widefield Light Microscopy
  • Live Cell Microscopy
  • Training and Education
