Image Management Core at HMS

Harvard Medical School Image Management Core

The Harvard Medical School Image Management Core (IMC) is a service of HMS Research IT Solutions to help researchers manage image data and metadata. The IMC was created in response to the growing complexity and difficulty of managing research image data. The first major offering of the IMC will be a shared installation of the OMERO image management platform. The HMS IT department will install and maintain an OMERO server for use by on-quad HMS researchers.

OMERO is client-server software for visualization, management and analysis of biological microscope images. From the microscope to publication, OMERO handles all your images in a secure central repository. You can view, organize, analyze and share your data from anywhere you have internet access. Work with your images from a desktop app (Windows, Mac or Linux), from the web or from 3rd party software. Over 140 image file formats supported using the Bio-Formats library, including all major microscope formats.
