The Light and Electron Microscopy Center is a fully staffed microscopy core facility available to all St. Jude researchers. It offers access to a broad spectrum of sophisticated technologies for light microscopy, electron microscopy and image analysis.
Expert professional staff are on hand to assist throughout the experimental process up to the point of publication. As well as operating instruments, helping with sample preparation and performing analyses, staff can help select the best imaging strategies to answer specific research questions. In-depth training is also offered.
The Light Microscopy and Electron Microscopy divisions within the center collaborate on correlated imaging for projects that require individual samples to be imaged using both techniques. Costs are heavily subsidized by the institution to speed discovery.
