Dr. Michelle Itano, director of the UNC School of Medicine Neuroscience Center’s Microscopy Core, has launched a first-of-its-kind partnership with Leica Microsystems. This new Partner in Microscopy relationship offers unique opportunities for collaboration and feedback between UNC researchers and Leica Microsystems.

The partnership was launched September 20, 2022. Congratulations to Dr. Itano, the Neuroscience Microscopy Center staff, and the behind-the-scenes teams at Leica Microsystems and UNC Chapel Hill who worked to bring this partnership to fruition!
