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 the light microscopy core for the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. We work with researchers from UNC, other academic and governmental institutions, and companies.

MSL is closed to users.

If you have an EM project we may still be able to help you.

Email us at msl@med.unc.edu if you have questions about EM or our operations during this COVID-related closure.
