The NIF is an
Open Access Microscopy and Tissue Core

servicing the Boston area (and beyond) for light microscopy and tissue processing


The Neurobiology Imaging Facility is a completely open access light microscopy and tissue core located within the Neurobiology Department.
Our mission is to advance research by providing services in optical imaging, tissue clearing, in situ hybridization as well as introduce new equipment and cutting technology to the basic science community. We provide expertise, equipment and services that are costly, time consuming and technically difficult. Our core ensures consistency and precision. We are also a teaching facility that strives to provide learning opportunities to researchers in the greater Boston area.
