Snail mail address:

75 Francis Street, Thorn Building, Room 1210A, Boston MA, 02115, USA
From the HMS Quadrangle, cross Shattuck Street (behind Gordon Hall) and enter the Brigham and find your way to the BWH Pike (the long hallway that runs the length of the Brigham). The entrance to the Thorn Building is midway between the old PBBH building and the Hospital Tower. Ask the security guard to let you in (entrance is staffed 7AM-5PM weekdays); you will probably need to show I.D. or have me called at 617-732-7376. Take the Thorn elevators to the 12th floor, turn left down the hall to room 1210, and walk through the lab to reach my office, room 1210A.
Via the M2 shuttle from Harvard/MIT, get off at the final stop (Vanderbilt Hall), and cross Longwood Avenue to arrive at the base of HMS Quadrangle. Walk the length of the Quad, and go behind Gordon Hall at the head of the Quad to find yourself on Shattuck Street (more an alley than a proper street). You will now be facing the various buildings of the Brigham. The best entrance is reached by crossing left diagonally across Shattuck Street, walk up the steps to enter by a little coffee shop (Pat’s Place, decent sandwiches) to find yourself in the rotunda of the old Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. Go down the Pike to your right (ask the security guard if it’s not clear to you), and you will find the entrance to the Thorn Building ~100 yards down the Pike on your right. Then follow the directions above.
By public transportation (MBTA Green Line E train), get off at the Brigham Circle stop, and walk into the PBBH entrance, and find your way down the Pike to the Thorn Building entrance.
If coming by car, park (valet) at the 45 Francis Street (Ambulatory) entrance, and go through the Cabot Atrium to find the Pike beyond, turn right, and you will soon find your way to the Thorn Building entrance on your left.
