To achieve its mission, the CEM has assembled a set of state-of-the-art facilities available to CEM members interested in investigating cellular and molecular phenomena.


The CEM headquarters is located in a newly renovated state-of-the-art research facility in Building 114 at MGH East in Charlestown. In addition to office and laboratory space, the Charlestown site features the NIH BioMEMS Resource Center. The BioMEMS Resource Center aims to integrate the use of MEMS in biology and medicine. It has a class 1000 clean room with a complete set of MEMS fabrication equipment. In addition, the CEM has a genomics and proteomics facility, equipped with an Affymetrix 417 pin and ringTM arrayer and scanner, real-time PCR light cycler, MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometer, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis apparatus, robotic spot picker, and a high-resolution densitometer, and phosphorimager system; The biophotonics facility equipped with a five-parameter flow cytometer, a laser scanning confocal microscope, laser facility, light-scattering apparatus, and supporting computational services.There are also microscopy and iImage analysis facilities with several time-lapse, high-throughput imaging scopes, and single-cell and microarray imaging capabilities for molecular simulation studies and other types of numerical modeling.
