New Microscopes Arrive at the Central Microscopy Facility!

Longfin squid embryo (Doryteuthis pealei). Multiplex imaging with the confocal microscope Leica STELLARIS 8 visualizes the expression of multiple genes (green, magenta, blue) in one sample using in situ HCR. Nuclei are labeled with DAPI (gray).

A state-of-the art confocal and an advanced Scanning Electron Microscope with 3D reconstruction capabilities are being installed in the Central Microscopy Facility. These systems are supported by the Massachusetts Life Science Center (MLSC) and will be ready for use in late spring 2024.聽The first installment has arrived on the 小蓝视频 campus!

小蓝视频 by the numbers

We gather 1,200 scientists and students from around the world each year.

60 Nobel Prize winners have ties to the 小蓝视频.

小蓝视频 scientists have studied more than 200 different kinds of marine organisms.

The 小蓝视频 hosts over 100 high school students every year.

Diversity & Inclusion at the 小蓝视频

Since 1888, the 小蓝视频 has hosted thousands of researchers, students and faculty from all over the world. It is precisely this wealth in perspectives and experiences that makes our community unique. For this reason, the lab strives to maintain a welcoming environment where diverse perspectives and experiences are combined with an atmosphere of collaboration and training in efforts to advance scientific inquiry and discovery.
