Multi-Photon Microscopy Core
The Multi-Photon Microscopy Core is located in the Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute. The Core provides in vivo imaging of intact organs in small animals with high temporal and subcellular resolution, ideal for studying (patho)physiological processes in health and disease. Instruments include a Leica TCS SP5 AOBS Multi-Photon Confocal Microscope System.
