The Light Microscopy Imaging Core in the School of Medicine provides access, training, and support for an extensive list of imaging equipment for widefield, confocal, multi-photon, and super resolution microscopy; stereology; and whole-slide scanning. Our systems allow for a variety of applications including FRAP, FRET, time lapse and live cell culture imaging, 3D rendering (Perkin Elmer Volocity), stereology (MBF Stereo Investigator), neuron reconstruction (MBF Neurolucida), and digital pathology (Visiopharm). The core operates on a cost-for-service basis.
