Histology, Biochemistry, and Molecular Imaging (HBMI) Core
The primary mission of the HBMI Core is to provide high quality histological, biochemical, and molecular imagining services as well as training in histological and imaging techniques to investigators with the Center for Musculoskeletal Research (CMSR) and the University of Rochester who study musculoskeletal tissue biology and pathology.
- Paraffin and frozen tissue processing, embedding, and sectioning.
- Histological staining.
- Guidance and support for histomorphometric and molecular imaging analysis.

New Bioinformatics Service Announcement
We are pleased to provide more information about bioinformatics services being offered in the CMSR. As part of our NIH P30 award, we have partnered with the Genomics Research Center to onboard Dr. Lauren Benoodt as a senior bioinformatics analyst embedded in the CMSR.
There are two main opportunities to leverage this resource.
Single cell seq Bootcamp
This training series is for trainees or faculty who do not have extensive experience working with single cell sequencing datasets. This bootcamp is offered as a series of four full-day workshops (one day/week for four weeks).
Working with R
Raw data quality control
If you would like to attend this session please email Alayna Loiselle
Bioinformatics Consulting Service
For trainees and investigators with experience in scRNA-seq and/or Spatial Transcriptomics datasets who have specific questions regarding data analysis, Dr. Benoodt offers consulting services on a fee for service basis ($40/hr). Those wishing to schedule a consultation with Dr. Benoodt can contact her at Lauren_Benoodt@urmc.rochester.edu.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Alayna Loiselle.
