UCSD School of Medicine Microscopy Core

The UCSD School of Medicine Microscopy Core - Leica Center of Excellence is a state-of-the-art imaging core that serves the needs of laboratories in and outside of the UCSD School of Medicine. Our instruments push the limits of resolution, speed and sensitivity. We offer resources that range from electron microscopy ultrastructure resolution to whole organism / live animal imaging. The Core strives to promote interdisciplinary, collaborative research among the local research community. Experienced staff are available to assist with everything from sample prep to imaging to analysis. All instrumentation is owned by the core, and available for reliable access to necessary technology.
