The Stanford Neuroscience Microscopy Service (NMS) is a university service center founded in 2007 to provide microscopy expertise and access to high resolution, state-of-the-art imaging technologies to Stanford University and surrounding academic and biotech researchers.
Our facilities are centrally located at the Stanford Neuroscience Building and Lorry I. Lokey Stem Cell Research Building, both conveniently accessible via a ~5-10 minute walk to all researchers from the nearby School of Medicine, School of Engineering and School of Humanities and Sciences.
Dr. Gordon Wang is the Director of the NMS and a faculty in the department of Psychiatry. He is responsible for the strategic planning and execution of the NMS's long-range objectives. He also oversees the day-to-day management and operation of the NMS. Dr. Wang reports directly to the Director of Wu Tsai Neuroscience institute (Dr. William Newsome) and the director for Neuroscience Community Labs (Tim Doyle, D.Phil).
The NMS also works closely with the Cell Sciences Imaging Facility (CSIF), which provides light and electron microscopy services to the Stanford community with support from the Beckman Foundation. The directors of the NMS and CSIF routinely meet to discuss and plan services, programs and technology acquisition that will benefit the Stanford research community.
