Abstract for Grants
The objective of the Light Microscopy Digital Imaging Core is to provide services, facilities and expertise to City of Hope investigators needing high quality light microscope images.
Microscopy and imaging technology are rapidly evolving fields that depend increasingly on expensive equipment and skills beyond the means of most individual laboratories. We seek to provide a range of research-grade light and confocal microscope platforms for simple observations and documentation suitable for publication, education or grant proposals.
The Light Microscopy Digital Imaging Core also makes available the latest research platforms for automated microscopy experiments, advanced observation techniques and sophisticated digital image processing and analysis.
Note: This core is not supported by the National Cancer Institute-funded Cancer Center Support Grant.
