Chris Hayden


The Eyes Have It: practical considerations for small animal retinal preparation

Chris was first hooked on the electron microscopy when he spotted the shockingly orange column of a Zeiss 900 in one of his undergraduate studies.  He asked what he had to do to get time on that instrument, Since then, Chris has been playing in the electron microscopy game for nearly 20 years. Chris’s focus has generally been toxicologic effects of developmental compounds in Novartis Pharmaceuticals’ Pre-Clinical Safety division, with an emphasis on sample collection and preparation. Chris is located at the Novartis campus in Cambridge, MA
