Central Microscopy

The purpose of this central facility is to provide to researchers an equipment, service, and information resource for microscopy. By supporting the staff and large equipment service costs from broad-based funding contributions derived fromcompetitive grant overhead and other sources, high quality equipment, facilities, and staff are accessible to all researchers at very modest fees.
