Visitor parking is located in Lot 4 (toward the center of the map). During normal business hours a parking permit is required. Obtain a permit from a Scripps Research security staff-member stationed at the entrance to that parking lot and park in an available space. Do not enter the hospital patient parking lot or you will be required to pay for parking.

Enter the Immunology & Microbial Science Building through the breezeway to the south (left on the map) of Lot 4. If the door is locked, use the call box located to the left of the front entrance. The call box allows us to buzz you in. Sign in at the front desk and take the elevator in the northwest corner (top-right of the building according to the map) to the first floor. The elevator near the front desk does not reach our facility. On the 1st floor you will find the Flow Cytometry Core Facility in room R12.
