MICKI–Microscopy Imaging Core of the Krasnow Institute

Just opened in our new space. Our cellular imaging core. The facility is already being used extensively by several of our neuroscience labs, but it’s available for other interested investigators in the Washington D.C. area and includes confocal microscopy.

Cellular imaging is a complement to our existing non-invasive human brain imaging capabilities here at Krasnow. In my own research, I’ve used confocal microscopy to image in vivo, the translocation of protein kinase C following sea urchin egg fertilization. Here at Krasnow, cellular imaging is used for a variety of neuroscience models ranging from drosophila (fruit fly) to mouse.

For those interested in using MICKI, please just drop me a line.
