Publications

Investigators were asked to identify publications that utilized the Leduc Bioimaging Facility at Brown University.  The resulting list includes manuscripts from all Basic Science Departments in the Division of Biology and Medicine (MCB, MPPB, Neuroscience, EEB, and MMI), Clinical Departments (Pathology, Pediatrics, and Psychiatry), the Psychology, Chemistry, and Engineering Departments, and the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole.  The list includes manuscripts that resulted from cross-departmental and inter-institutional collaborations and includes several publications in high-profile journals, including the Cell Series, Nature, and Science.  The studies range from hydrogels and nanoparticles to fertilization, development, heart defects, neural disorders, infectious disease, cancer, and aging, showing the breadth of imaging at Brown University.  The current list was compiled 08-20-08 and we estimate that it is 38% complete.   If you have any additional publications that utilized the facility, please send the references to:  Robbert_Creton@brown.edu
