Advanced Microscopy Core

Overview of Services

Tissue morphology and knowledge of the localization of specific proteins within a cell are integral to understanding cellular metabolism, the causes and consequences of diabetes, and new advances for the treatment of diabetes.

The tools of morphological analysis are varied, but most involve particular skills or equipment that are too costly to be supported in individual laboratories. The Advanced Microscopy Core provides a wide range of services covering the broad categories: performing specific morphological procedures, providing training and access to equipment, maintaining the specialized microscopes, and giving advice and interpretation.

While the plastic embedding and electron microscope work, including immunolocalization of specific molecules at the ultrastructural level, are done by the Core Manager, other equipment is available for individual use after the completion of training with the Core Manager.
