The Indiana O’Brien Center for Advanced Microscopic Analysis is an NIH P30-funded research center dedicated to the development and dissemination of advanced methods of optical microscopy to support renal researchers throughout the world. The Indiana O’Brien Center was founded in 2002 with the original goal of helping researchers realize the potential of intravital multiphoton microscopy as a tool for understanding renal physiology and pathophysiology. The Center has since expanded into the development and implementation of large-scale, high-content tissue cytometry. The advanced imaging capabilities of the center are made available to renal researchers worldwide via collaborations and a unique fellowship program. Center outreach is accomplished through an Enrichment Core that oversees a seminar series, an informational website and a biennial workshop featuring hands-on training from members of the Indiana O’Brien Center and imaging experts from around the world.
