The mission of the IMC to help the HMS research community with managing images and image metadata. Modern research imaging instruments can produce large, complex image datasets. To take full advantage of this data can be difficult. The IMC was established to help. 

Our primary offering is called OMERO. OMERO is a server platform for the management of microscope images and metadata. In addition to OMERO the IMC will offer consultative services to help researchers make best use of the other services available at HMS for the acquisition, analysis, storage, sharing, and publication of research images.
