Directions to the lab:

We are located in the Koch Biology Building (aka Building 68) on the MIT campus at the corner of Ames St. and Main St., about one block from the Kendall Square T stop (subway). The easiest way to get here is to take the T (Red Line) to the Kendall Square stop or take a cab and ask the driver to drop you at Kendall Square or Legal Sea Foods. If driving, parking is difficult to find. From the south, take I-93 North to Boston and take the exit marked 'Cambridge'. After exiting, look for the LongFellow Bridge and cross it into Cambridge. When you cross over you will be on Main St. Go a block or two on Main St., make a left onto Ames St. and look for a parking spot at one of the meters on either side of Ames. Bring quarters. Time limit is 2 hours. For longer visits, park in the pay lot at Tech Square: continue on Main St. past Ames St. After crossing the train tracks, make your first right and the parking lot will be on your left.

Enter Bldg 68 through the set of doors at the Main Street end of the building (marked by arrow) and make your way inside to the stairway. Take the stairs to the second floor. As you reach the second floor, my office (68-271) will be immediately in front of you. To reach the lab, turn right and walk down the corridor a few feet - the doors will be on your left. The wet labs are in 68-259 and 68-265 and the dry lab is 68-253. The lab phones are (617) 253-7039 (dry lab) and (617) 253-6726 (wet lab), and my office phone is (617) 258-5997. My assistant is Sarah Mann, (617) 253-9395. We are not hard to find, but call if you get lost.
