Advanced Microscopy Shared Resource

Equipment/facility: Facility

  • Location

    United States


Featuring state-of-the-art microscopy equipment including the laser scanning confocal microscope, laser capture microdissection system, live cell and time-lapse imaging and a variety of upright, inverted fluorescent microscopes, the Advanced Microscopy shared resource provides our fellow researchers access to the cutting-edge imaging technology for enhancing their basic, clinical or translational studies of human diseases and biomedical experiments using either fixed or live cells or tissues.

The Advanced Microscopy shared resource provides scientific and technical expertise to aid in experiment design, specimen preparation, optimal image acquisition and training courses to help researchers get access and use the advanced microscope systems more efficiently.

The specific objectives of this shared resource are to offer:
- A powerful array of contemporary microscopes and highly specialized imaging tools.
- Assist researchers with their microscopy experiment design.
Provide training courses to new users allowing them to become familiar with sophisticated equipment quickly and efficiently.
- Provide researchers with expert consultation in sample preparation, image acquisition, data analysis for presentations, grant applications and publications.
