Janelia Research Campus

Janelia Research Campus Janelia is a pioneering research center where scientists from many disciplines gather to collaborate on some of science's most challenging problems.
(80)

Janelia's overall objective is to pursue fundamental problems in basic biomedical research that are difficult to approach in academia and industry, because: * They require expertise from disparate areas. * They are too long-term for standard funding mechanisms. * They are outside the current priorities of other funding agencies.

Thanks to Inova Loudoun Hospital for the great opportunity to support the littlest patients.

A big thank you to our friends at Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Research Campus for their awesome (and adorable!) donation of custom-made stuffed animals for our Pediatric unit!

Our facility dog, Jeremiah, can’t wait to deliver these cuddly companions to our youngest patients. Thanks to Janelia and to all of our neighbors who help us take care of our community!

Tools of the Trade: Q&A with Luke Lavis | Janelia Research Campus

Tool-building has always been a core part of the research here at Janelia. Senior Group Leader Luke Lavis explains why it’s so important and how the new Molecular Tools and Imaging group will emphasize and further develop this type of science.

"Making tool-building equivalent in significance and scale to our biological programs is unique in the scientific landscape." - Luke Lavis.

Tool-building has always been an essential part of scientific progress and a core part of the research at Janelia Research Campus. With the recent changes in its focus areas, how is Janelia staying committed to tool-building?

shrimplike_crustacean from release

This stunning video of the developing embryo of a crustacean is the result of work by Janelia’s Anastasios Pavlopoulos and colleagues who harnessed the power of a multi-view light-sheet microscope to trace and study cells of the animal’s growing limbs. The study subject, Parhyale hawaiensis, is a shrimp-like marine crustacean that develops a remarkable suite of specialized limbs along its body.

The microscope makers

"Janelia has plenty of off-the-shelf commercial microscopes. But when the tools they need don’t exist, they don’t wait for them to be invented elsewhere — they build them in-house."

A small community of scientists has taken a do-it-yourself approach to microscopy: when the right tool for the job doesn’t exist, make it.

MouseLight helps researchers unravel secrets of the brain. Researchers at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Janelia Research Campus have created a 3D map of 300 mouse neurons, with the aim of adding another 700 in 2018. However, even this feat only scratches the surface of the 70 million neurons typically found in a mouse’s brain. Scientists injected a virus into the brains of mice which would infect a few cells and cause them to produce fluorescent proteins; they then imaged the brain with high-resolution microscopes and turned the resulting images into 3D computer models. They found many of the axons (slender projections of the neuron) were up to half a metre in length and stretched into unexpected regions of the brain, for example the neurons associated with taste also stretched into areas controlling movement and touch. More information on the project is available on the MouseLight website.

New Silicon Probes Record Activity of Hundreds of Neurons Simultaneously

Neuropixels, new silicon probes that can simultaneously record activity of hundreds of neurons, are expected to give scientists a much clearer picture of how different parts of the brain work together to process information.

With nearly 1,000 electrical sensors positioned along a probe thinner than a human hair but long enough to access many regions of a rodent’s brain simultaneously, Neuropixels could greatly accelerate…

Recipe for Discovery: Tonic Water, Malaria, and a Splash of Serendipity | Janelia Research Campus

If you’ve ever enjoyed a gin and tonic under the subtle glow of a black light, you’ve seen fluorescence in action. This infographic and brief story guide you through the history of fluorescence – from discovery to the development of Janelia Fluor dyes.

In Luke Lavis’s lab at HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus, scientists bring modern chemistry to bear on synthetic fluorescent dyes that have been around for a century and a half, tuning and tweaking them for specific biological applications.

Congratulations to HHMI's first group of Hanna Gray Fellows.

Spring 2018

Registration opens today for Spring 2018 conferences at Janelia! These meetings are intentionally small, highly specialized, and primarily focused in the areas of neurobiology and bioimaging. We especially encourage applications from female scientists and those who identify with groups traditionally underrepresented in science.

Registration opens on September 1, 2017. Deadlines vary by meeting. See descriptions for more details.
