Research Core


 The shared Electron Microscopy Research Core (EMRC) enables the neuroscience community in the UCC to extent their experimental approaches. The facility aims to satisfy the growing need for electron microscopy (EM) as a research tool and to provide our students with diversity backgrounds with the opportunity of being trained in a powerful EM approach by highly qualified personnel. The EMRC Objectives are to provide high quality training and research opportunities to faculty and students from diversity backgrounds and continue fostering effective collaborations with local and external researchers. Finally, the EMRC loner-term goal is to combine electron microscopy with super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, and thus to bring to our community cutting edge capabilities for neuronal structural analysis at the nano-scale.
