UCL imaging facilities

UCL excels in all aspects of imaging of molecules, cells and tissues. Substantial investment from the JIF/Wellcome Trust programme, Platform Technologies CIF awards, and other sources have provided state-of-the-art facilities, where researchers are interested in events that change in time at the organ, tissue, cell and molecular level using advanced imaging methodologies.
All cell and tissue imaging core facilities (list) can be contacted by e-mailing microscopy@ucl.ac.uk
