Walking Directions

The lab is located in Building 13, room 4027. Building 13 is immediately adjacent to Building 10, which is the one with the big dome.

From Kendall Square

Directly across from the Marriott, there is a small street where food trucks like to park. Walk down that street and on your right there will be some steps leading up to a revolving door, which is building E23, MIT Medical Center. Walk through this building and out the other side into a courtyard. Keep walking straight, and cross Ames St. At Ames St, there will be a building that terminates in a sharp point; stay just to the right of this building. Pass through a bicycle parking area, and then building 13 will be on your left. If you come to Massachusetts Ave., you have gone too far.

Take the elevator to the 4th floor and turn left. The lab is room 4027, which is near the west end of the hallway.

From Massachusetts Ave.

Directly across the street from the big white head sculpture, take the steps leading up into Building 7. Keep walking straight down the corridor. At the next large lobby you encounter (with a high cieling), turn left and walk past the Compton Gallery. Walk down a short flight of stairs, and you will be in the large lobby of Building 13.

Take the elevator to the 4th floor and turn left. The lab is room 4027, which is near the west end of the hallway.
