The Mesoamerican Laboratory, or "Meso Lab", is dedicated to research in Mesoamerican archaeology, ethnology, epigraphy, and iconography, and provides working and meeting space for students and faculty year-round.

The lab fosters collaborations between the Harvard faculty, students, museum staff, outside scholars, and countries with Mesoamerican archaeological sites and descendant communities through internships, study projects, and fieldwork.
