Misson

To provide access to and direction in the very powerful and rapidly progressing techniques of confocal microcopy and widefield imaging thus enabling NCI scientists to rapidly advance in their research efforts.

Expertise

The Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Genetics Microscopy Core Facility provides state-of-the-art confocal and fluorescence microscopy and digital imaging to LCBG investigators, as well as scientists from other laboratories in the CCR. The LCBG Core aims to support high quality clinical and translational research in cancer biology and to train students, residents, and fellows in the field of confocal and light microscopy. The Core is open to all CCR intramural researchers, although LCBG scientists have priority use of equipment in the facility. Researchers from other institutes are welcome to use the facility for a fee. There is no charge for CCR investigators.

Facility staff provides individual training for all new users. The Core can consult with experimental design, specimen preparation, immunofluorescent staining, image acquisition using the appropriate equipment, and analysis.

Unless special arrangements are made, the equipment in the facility may be used Monday to Friday, 10:00am – 6:00pm.
