Structural and Functional Imaging Core
The Structural and Functional Imaging Core at the Burke Neurological Institute is an essential facility that provides state-of-the-art imaging resources and assistance to researchers across the Institute. The Imaging Core offers experimental and educational resources, data analysis and documentation to the investigators that need to test hypotheses, design and/or perform experiments for a publication or funding opportunity.
In 2020, with funding support of more than a half a million dollars from the National Institutes of Health Research Infrastructure Programs, the Imaging Core acquired Nikon’s latest confocal microscope with the largest field of view (25 mm) in its field will enable our team to expand the limits of scientific research. With powerful, eye opening images and videos going deep into layers of live tissues to microscopic cellular levels, it will have an immediate positive impact on several NIH projects taking place at the Institute. Equipping our Imaging Core facility with state-of-the-art technology creates a central hub for the Institute where hypotheses risen by our research labs are propelled into experiments that pave the way to tomorrow’s discoveries.
