-The Bioimaging ​Facility ​acts as a support structure to help and nurture research done with Light Microscopy inside the institute. Besides managing resources, the Facility ​provides iMM scientists and visitors with excellence in scientific know-how and expertise in using light microscopy methods for their research. We assist in planning microscopy-oriented projects, choosing materials and equipment, analyzing experimental results, processing acquired images and presenting data. Together with continuous training of new users, we organize regular courses to introduce users to the most recent microscopy techniques and foster interactions and collaborations between microscopy users at the iMM.+The Bioimaging ​Unit acts as a support structure to help and nurture research done with Light Microscopy inside the institute.
