UKE Microscopy Imaging Facility (UMIF) Save as PDFShow print view

The UKE Microscopy Imaging Facility (UMIF) mission is to provide cutting edge state of the art light microscopy techniques to the scientific community as well as increase, diffuse and preserve the knowledge about light microscopy. UMIF pursues his goal following three main paths. UMIF will acquire and keep up to date advanced light microscopes that will allow scientists to perform research at a world class level. Researchers will be carefully trained and supported by UMIF personnel in order to use the best the facility equipment. Secondly UMIF will provide a series of basic and advanced workshops aimed to diffuse and keep the knowledge about light microscopy techniques as well as to inform scientist about the potential impact that these techniques can have on their research, The workshops will be hold by UMIF personnel itself, by top scientists and by high ranked companies in the field of light microscopy. Finally, the multi-disciplinary UMIF team will also keep contributing, on a small scale, to the development of advance light microscopy methods or techniques. This point is extremely important in order to fulfil the main aims of this imaging facility
