The Advanced Microscopy Core Facility operates in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology on the campus of UNMC. The facility provides instruction in use of the LSM and LSM access for trained investigators on a fee-for-use-time basis. The facility will also collect and process images from samples supplied by investigators on a fee-for-service basis.
