The NeuroTechnology Studio

The BWH NeuroTechnology Studio provides access to advanced instrumentation for optical microscopy, genomics, metabolic imaging and other technologies, as well as image analysis software.  We also provide expert support and training for new and experienced users.  Our primary focus is neuroscience research but we also welcome users from other fields.  We are located in the BWH Hale Building (60 Fenwood Road), primarily on the 7th floor but with additional instruments on the 9th and 10th floors.   All users must receive training before using the equipment.
