Our mission is to help you with your research.

We provide training, assistance and services in light microscopy, electron microscopy and image analysis.

We look forward to hearing about your research needs and how we can help.

We are a UNC core facility that is part of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, and are a light microscopy core for the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. We work with researchers from UNC, other academic and governmental institutions, and companies.
