The Microscopy Resources On the North Quad (MicRoN) facility is a new light microscopy core established by the Departments of Genetics and Microbiology and HMS as a decentralized or "floating" core. We have 5 different microscope rooms embebbed within the two departments. We find that this model generates a greater interaction among trainees from the two 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!

  • Provide dedicated microscopy expertise to advise, train and assist users.
