Microscopy Community

The Microscopy Community at Lund University (MiCLU) is promoting imaging with a special focus on correlative 3D imaging with microscopy and microscopic analysis at Lund University. The main role of MiCLU is to provide planning for good access at Lund University to advanced equipment and methods in microscopy and microscopic analysis. 


MiCLU has the following tasks:

1. To be an advisory body to the Vice Chancellor and Faculty Deans at Lund University

2. To co-ordinate existing infrastructure, aiming at efficient use and maximal availability

3. To monitor, on a yearly basis, the current needs, and suggest actions for maintaining state-of-the-art facilities

4. To follow the technological development and plan for emerging and future infrastructure needs

5. To co-ordinate initiatives for applications to external funding bodies

6. To when needed act as a Lund University node for national infrastructure

7. To work for coordination and synergism between imaging resources at LU, MAX IV and ESS as well as other regional and national infrastructures

2017 years Advanced Microscopy Workshop brings together researchers from the Nordic countries working with advanced microscopy modalities. This year talks will cover imaging pursued with Light sheet, AIRY scan, SIM, PALM/STORM, as well as FCS and STED, with an emphasis on practical aspects and biological applications. The meeting is organized by the BioImaging Facilities at SciLifeLab in Solna and ZEISS. Attendance is free but places are limited so take the chance and sign up right now!
