Neural Cell Engineering and Imaging

The Neural Cell Engineering and Imaging Core (formerly known as the Cellular and Molecular Neuroimaging Core), supported by the Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience and the Rose F. Kennedy Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center, combines state-of-the-art equipment and highly personalized service for microscopy-based studies of neural tissues. Technical support is provided to advise, train and assist Einstein investigators through all pertinent research aspects of neuroimaging, from experimental design to specimen preparation, data collection and analysis, and preparation of publication-quality figures. The staff welcomes investigators from all areas of biology and medicine interested in obtaining scientific expertise for structural analytical neuroscience studies.

  • This core encompasses several separate facilities:
  • Optical Imaging Facility
  • Electron Microscopy Facility
  • Laser Capture and Microdissection Facility
  • Image Analysis and Graphics Facility
