SNSF: Electron & Ion Microscopy Facilities:

The Electron & Ion Microscopy facilities in the McCullough, Moore and Spilker buildings features advanced tools for Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Focused Ion Beam (FIB). (Materials science oriented)

Neuroscience Microscopy Service (NMS):

The NMS provides access to high-end, capital-intensive microscopy equipment that is often not available to individual labs. Facility was located in the basement of the Lorry Lokey Stem Cell Building (SIM1), suite G0901, all instruments except for the LSM710 are relocated to WuTsai Neuroscience Institute S080.

Histology & Cryostat

Animal Histology Services:

The Department of Comparative Medicine's Animal Histology Services (AHS) provides a broad range of histological techniques that include standard processing and embedding methods as well as processing of larger specimens, serial and step sectioning, sectioning of frozen specimens, and a variety of staining techniques. 

Human Pathology/Histology Service Center:

Provides a broad range of tissue processing services to Stanford investigators in human disease research and provides advice and expertise in tissue processing.


The Computational Services and Bioinformatics Facility:

The CSBF provides computer software support.  Both commercial and public domain software for sequence analysis, molecular modeling and mathematical and statistical analysis are available at this facility.

Statistical Analysis Consultation

Tech Refinement and Innovation Lab (TRI-Lab):

Biostatistics Support and experimental design optimization in basic and translation animal research. Particular expertise in high-power designs, and epidemiological, data mining, Monte-Carlo and simulation studies   Service can provide consultation on design and sample size justification for APLAC (IACUC) protocol submission; help with data analysis after the fact (including response to paper review); or a full service.

Department of Statistics Consulting Services:

Free drop-in consulting service to members of the University community. Under the supervision of a senior faculty member, statistics doctoral candidates and experienced master's students provide assistance in areas such as: Experimental design, Data analysis and interpretation of results, Model fitting, Time series, Classification and prediction. Drop by, especially in the early stages of your research. At any stage, of course, you may bring data, prior analyses, or any other relevant material.
