Imaging Core

We work with investigators at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Research Institute and other collaborating institutions to provide fee-based assisted and unassisted access to a variety of state-of-the-art microscopic imaging systems. 

Operated by the Pediatric Pathology Division at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Children's Research Institute, our microscopy-based Imaging Core is open to all investigators at collaborating institutions.

Access to microscopic and imaging systems is controlled, monitored and protected by sign-up sheets, card reader entry and individualized computer account sign-on. Unassisted use of Imaging Core equipment requires prescribed training, demonstration of competency and approval by the core director. For additional information regarding the core's policies or resources, contact the core director, Paula North, MD, PhD, at (414) 266-2255. Investigators already affiliated with Children’s Research Institute can find more information about the Imaging Core’s equipment, fees and policies on the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin intranet.

Core hours: 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday
