The complexity of the human brain exceeds that of any observable system in the known universe. In order to ensure that our researchers have access to cutting-edge tools, technologies and methodologies, Harvard University invests in shared core facilities; from macro and micro-scale imaging technologies, genetics and behavioral analysis to neuro-engineering and bioinformatics. Below we list some examples, with links to more detailed listings.
Harvard Cambridge Campus:
Bauer Core Facility – includes Sequencing, Flow Cytometry, Real-Time PCR, Single Cell Analysis
