Our researchers have access to state-of-the-art facilities containing the most advanced technology, from two-photon confocal and electron microscopy to proteomics and gene array equipment. These are contained both within individual labs and in shared facilities.
Academic resources include the Welch Medical Library, which also provides online access to hundreds of medical and scientific journals and training courses. But our greatest strength is the combined expertise of our extensive basic science and clinical faculty. Hopkins faculty can provide biostatistics expertise, access to clinical samples, numerous experimental models for neurological disorders and injury, and use of behavioral-testing equipment, to name but a few opportunities.
NINDS Institutional Center Core Grant to Support Neuroscience Research
This center is comprised of the 3 core facilities listed below. The experimental opportunities offered by these Cores complement and do not duplicate existing Core facilities available to NINDS-funded investigators here at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Neuroscience Machine Shop
The Department of Neuroscience has a full-facility machine shop. The shop is capable of advanced design, fabrication, and service/repair of instruments large, small, and micro. Our shop is staffed by a top notch machinist, Terry Shelley. Terry has been with the University since 1989. He has a proven gift for building intricate components that have made many difficult experiments possible. Cell chambers, stereotaxic systems, custom gel boxes or any other devices you can think of we can build it. The shop is well equipped with a milling machine, lathe, surface grinder, cnc milling machine, and other various types of equipment. We are willing, capable, and ready to help you with all your machining needs. For NINDS-funded researchers we have a limited amount of funded machine time for your use. Please contact Terry for additional information, 410-955-9847. Click here to fill out a Work Order Form. The machine shop is located at 928 PreClinical Teaching Building.
