Biological Microscopy

Dunn_webbThe Indiana Center for Biological Microscopy is one of a handful in the world equipped for low-light level microscopy, confocal microscopy, UV confocal microscopy, 2-photon microscopy, digital deconvolution microscopy, live cell microscopy and the latest systems for digital image analysis and visualization. Funding from Indiana University, the National Institutes of Health and the Lilly Endowment have given Indiana University a world-class center for biomedical imaging. IU Simon Cancer Center members can use the center’s equipment at reduced rates.

The center is located in Research II on the campus of Indiana University–Purdue University in Indianapolis. In addition to providing efficient, state-of-the-art biomedical imaging support, the center is also actively involved in biological imaging research and the development of new methods of microscopy and digital image analysis software.
