Latest information on COVID-19

Our new virtual home

Welcome to the Stanford Center for Innovation in In vivo Imaging (SCi3), the primary small animal and translational imaging shared resource serving our diverse, multi-disciplinary research community.

As we adapt to new technologies and approaches to doing research, SCi3 is also evolving to ensure it continues to meet the emerging needs and scientific goals of our research programs at Stanford.

As we carefully restart research activities, refer to the COVID-19 page for the latest SCi3 updates, operations, and on-site and virtual resources (SUNet ID required).
