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.

SCi3 Ongoing Events

SCi3 Monthly User Meeting

Last Wednesday of every month | 9-10am, ZOOM

Join us each month for brief updates on the Clark and Porter imaging centers, an open forum for user concerns and questions and an educational focus session.
