Facility Details

The Microscopy Resources On the North Quad (MicRoN) facility is a light microscopy core established by the Departments of Genetics, Immunology and Microbiology, and it is open to all HMS researchers, including Affiliated hospitals. MicRoN is a non-traditional decentralized or "floating" microscopy core. We support a wide range of imaging modalities ranging from widefield, TIRF, spinning disk and single point scanning confocal, multiphoton, FLIM and supper-resolution. The 14 microscopes that currently make up the core are embedded within the Departments of Microbiology, Immunology, and Genetics, housed in five microscope rooms on five floors of NRB and HIM. We find that this model generates a greater interaction among trainees from the three departments and encourages a more collaborative environment. We are proud of working with the Departments of Genetics, Microbiology and Immunology and would love hearing from you!
