Harvard Medical School

The Nikon Imaging Center at Harvard Medical School (NIC@HMS) is a Cell Biology Department, Systems Biology Department, and Biochemistry & Molecular Pharmacology Department core facility for light microscopy developed in partnership with Nikon Instruments Inc. and Micro Video Instruments Inc. The NIC@HMS also has several corporate contributors including Binder GmbH, CellASIC, Chroma Technology, CYTOO, Hamamatsu Photonics, Lumencor, Molecular Devices, Prior Scientific, Sutter Instrument Company and Tokai Hit Co., Ltd.

The mission of the NIC@HMS is to:

  • Enhance basic research by providing access to state-of-the-art microscopy and imaging equipment
  • Provide training courses on basic and advanced light microscopy techniques for the benefit of HMS and the greater Boston research community
  • Introduce the latest innovations in light microscopy and imaging to the HMS community
  • Serve as a learning center for our corporate partners and contributors
  • Provide a dedicated NIC@HMS director for ongoing technical consultation and support

The NIC@HMS was the first Nikon Imaging Center, established in 2001. Nikon has since established several other Imaging Centers in collaboration with universities and research centers worldwide.
