Several research facilities are available to graduate and undergraduate researchers through the participating departments. Each faculty member has 500-2000 square feet of laboratory space in which they conduct active independent research programs. Modern well-equipped support laboratories complete with technical support personnel are available for shared activities and equipment. This support includes modern light microscopy and histology facilities scanning and transmission electron microscopes with digital imaging capabilities super-computer facilities molecular biology facilities and a hybridoma facility.
In addition to this departmental support, the Neuroscience Program, through funding from the National Science Foundation and Ohio University, maintains a 3-D imaging and image analysis facility for shared use. This facility includes a Zeiss LSM 510 laser scanning confocal microscope system a NeuroLucida 3D reconstruction and analysis system and a large format printer. A part-time imaging technician is employed to assist users and maintain these facilities.
