Advanced Light Microscopy/Spectroscopy and Macroscale Imaging
CNSI Room B145 (ALMS), CNSI Room 2144 (MSI)
Advanced microscopy & spectroscopy for the study of macromolecules, cell dynamics and nano-scale characterization of bio-materials.
Consultation, instruction and service in EM sample preparation, sectioning and staining; immuno-EM; negative staining; use of electron microscope; space and equipment use for self-service.
The overall goal of the Core is to enhance the effectiveness of the CURE: DDRCC program by providing cost effective services through centralized resources and facilities, as well as training and assistance for the application of morphological, imaging and stem cell biology technologies and promoting collaborations among CURE:DDRCC investigators with independently-funded research projects.
