Welcome to the Molecular Imaging Center

The Molecular Imaging Center (MIC) is a core microscopy facility managed by the Cancer Research Laboratory. The MIC provides the campus community with training and access to state-of-the-art light microscopy equipment.  Now in two locations – Life Sciences Addition Building (LSA) and the new Li Ka Shing Center for Biomedical and Health Sciences – the MIC specializes in live cell imaging, confocal, multi-photon, fluorescent lifetime imaging (FLIM), and equipment for optogenetic research.

New for 2013: single molecule 3D PALM and STORM imaging, 2-photon in vivo imaging with spatial light modulation, and long-term live cell imaging. For further information on the instruments available, please see the Instrumentation tab.
