This facility provides an integrated set of instruments that will allow
investigators to perform Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy
(CLEM) studies, enabling a series of experiments to study the functional
organization of cells that were previously not feasible. The facility
includes instrumentation for modern confocal microscopy, rapid freezing,
freeze-substitution and frozen-hydrated sectioning. A new generation of
scientists will be trained to pursue innovative approaches in cell
biology and neurobiology.
