The primary focus of the Intravital Microscopy Lab is on the study of immunological processes, such as immune cell migration and cell-cell interactions in lymphoid organs and peripheral tissues, in mouse experimental models.
The Intravital Microscopy Lab is directed by Thorsten Mempel, MD, PhD, a Principal Investigator of the Center for Immunology and Inflammatory Diseases. All of Dr. Mempel's lab members have specialized expertise in various mouse models for intravital microscopy-based investigations.
The CIID Intravital Microscopy Lab is situated on the 6th floor of Building 149 in the Charlestown Navy Yard. It consists of a microsurgical facility and an adjacent dedicated multiphoton microscopy room.
The multiphoton microscopy system consists of two Spectra-Physics MaiTai HP femtosecond pulsed infrared lasers and a Prairie Technologies Ultima IV upright laser scanning microscope equipped with a 4 channel detection system.
The Mempel laboratory welcomes opportunities for productive collaborations with members of the MGH research community.
