Providing leading edge services and instrumentation to all researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry

Note from the Directors

The Shared Resource Laboratories provide an extensive spectrum of trained personnel, innovative, leading edge services and instrumentation to all researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Our highly skilled and continually trained technical personnel provide the proper and timely expertise to bridge the gaps between sophisticated instrumentation and biology. We favor an integrated approach to research yielding more insight and an answer to today's increasingly complex questions.

Whatever it is you need to enhance your research, the Shared Resources Labs has it, will get it, will do it, or will invent it.

Upcoming Events

URMC Imaging Day

April 20, 2015

Class of '62 Aud, G-9425

Symposium: 8:30 am - 12:15 pm

FIJI/ImageJ2 Workshop: 1:00 - 3:30 pm

University of Rochester investigators rely on high-end microscopic capabilities to further their studies involving tissue, cells, and sub-cellular organelles.   In this half-day symposium, researchers will share their experience using the imaging technologies available to them at the URMC Shared Resource Laboratories.  Lectures will highlight the use of scanning and transmission electron microscopy, confocal microscopy, multiphoton microscopy and laser capture microdissection.  The keynote address will be delivered by Kevin Eliceiri, Ph.D., Director of Laboratory for Optical and Computational Instrumentation at University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Dr. Eliceiri is an internationally known expert in advanced light microscopy.  His topic will cover Multidimensional Live Cell Imaging and Informatics.  Following the half-day session, Dr. Eliceiri will conduct a 2-hour workshop on the new FIJI/ ImageJ2, the Java based image processing program developed at the NIH.   This symposium is recommended for all faculty, postdocs, students and staff who use imaging in their research and want to enhance their research study designs.
