The Neuroscience Microscopy Core is open! To ensure that all of our users and staff can use the core safely we have made a number of changes to our operating policies, and some of our equipment has moved.

Please see the COVID-19 Update on Operations page for more details and contact core facility staff with any questions.

The UNC Neuroscience Microscopy Core (NMC) is a center for high-resolution imaging and aims to make this technology accessible to neuroscientists and other scientific researchers.

Goals of the Neuroscience Microscopy Core:

  • to provide a full spectrum of advanced systems for cellular and molecular imaging of in vitro and in vivo samples
  • to implement new imaging technologies, particularly related to real time and tissue clearing based imaging of neurodevelopment and neural functions
  • to offer training, consultation, data analysis, image processing, and centralized technical expertise to support the imaging needs of neuroscientists and other researchers.

We are supported, in part, by funding from the NIH-NINDS Neuroscience Center Support Grant P30 NS045892 and the NIH-NICHD Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center Support Grant P50 HD103573.
