To acknowledge use of this shared resource, please include the following in your publications: This research was partially supported by UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center Support Grant NCI P30CA118100 and made use of the Fluorescence Microscopy and Cell Imaging shared resource.
Microscopy is at the heart of understanding tissue architecture, cell structure and dynamics, as well as molecular function. Fluorescence microscopy is routinely used to determine spatial and topological information about cells and tissues. Sophisticated laser scanning microscopic instrumentation, ultra sensitive digital cameras and specialized fluorescence probes make it possible to visualize cellular events in real time down to the molecular level.
