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.
TYPE OF RESEARCH:
The space is currently undergoing renovations but we expect the CLEM facility to be operational in July 2008.
