The Biosciences Imaging Centre was established and is operated by staff of the Department of Anatomy & Neuroscience. The Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience research groups have, over the years purchased a range of high precision Brightfield, Fluorescence, and Confocal Microscopes and associated Imaging Systems which are fundamental to its research work. The centre also incorporates the Electron Microscopy Facility which was developed by the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience and the Materials Section of the Chemistry Department in a joint interdepartmental initiative.
The department of Anatomy and Neuroscience has a long history of excellence in research and has established its Imaging Centre as a means by which other departments in UCC and users from the private sector, have access to its considerable collection of research grade quality microscopes, equipment and expertise. The Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience's Biosciences Imaging Centre is located on the Ground Floor of the BioSciences Institute.
The Biosciences Imaging Centre provides training and assistance in Brightfield, Fluorescence, Confocal, Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopy. The Biosciences Imaging Centre is a unique and important resource for members of the scientific community as they approach a variety of research problems that call for Microscopy techniques.
