DRSC Facility Location

Mailing/Reagents Shipping Address (and for Visitors):

New Research Building Room 336
77 Avenue Louis Pasteur
Boston, MA 02115

Expert tip: FBS. FBS cannot be shipped to the DRSC (or anywhere in the USA) from outside of the USA. Likewise, live cells should be shipped in a serum-free medium. If you are shipping reagents for your screen internationally, be sure to check the current US Customs regulations.

The building is near the Harvard Medical School Quadrangle in the Longwood Medical Area (LMA), which is in the Fenway/LMA neighborhood of Boston.

We are affiliated with the Department of Genetics, Harvard Medical School.
