Provides state of the art equipment in support of the specialized microscopy needs of NINDS-funded and other UNC neuroscientists. Notably over the past two years, the university provided help in applications to the North Carolina Biotechnology Center and an ARRA supplement. UNC provided assurances of long-term support for the Cores, and a promise to make up any shortfalls in the equipment purchase. Ultimately this support resulted in the purchase of state of the art Zeiss imaging systems (710 and 710 MP) and in the hiring of a Biophotonics expert, Dr. Ghukasyan, as the Core Director. The UNC SOM will enable continued improvements for the Confocal and Multiphoton Imaging Core in particular in supporting our efforts to add super solution imaging to the repertoire of services offered in the future.
