Facility Details

NYU School of Medicine’s Preclinical Imaging Laboratory provides investigators with access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies and strategies to image live animals at the organ, tissue, cell, or molecular level. Our technologies are indispensable to researchers studying and monitoring disease in small living subjects. Built in partnership with the Department of Radiology, our newly renovated, 4,000 square foot facility opened in May 2016 and enables researchers to perform noninvasive and nonlethal three-dimensional imaging. The lab is equipped with powerful instruments for micromagnetic resonance imaging, micropositron emission tomography, X-ray microcomputed tomography, bioluminescence and fluorescence scanning, and high-frequency ultrasound. Our instruments are located conveniently throughout NYU Langone’s facilities on First Avenue in Manhattan. Trained researchers can use them upon approval and for a fee. Devices are located either within or outside the pathogenic barrier and near the various vivaria, providing expanded access and support to investigators conducting diverse biomedical research projects. We welcome investigators conducting short-term evaluations of animal models or efficient longitudinal studies. The lab is directed by Youssef Zaim Wadghiri, PhD, associate professor, Department of Radiology, and has four full-time staff.
