The Imaging and Microscopy Centre was established as a research facility following the move of Biological Sciences into the newly built life-sciences “Building 85” in 2009.
The facility principally provides light-based imaging solutions for academics undertaking life-sciences, medical, engineering and translational research at the University of Southampton.
However, our resources are also available for use by researchers from other institutions and industry on request.
In addition to our role in research, we also provide educational facilities for both undergraduate and postgraduate students undertaking research at the university, as well as academic imaging courses for those who may be interested in making imaging part of their future careers.
We offer a range of research-standard imaging solutions to suit most requirements, and have instruments located both in Building 85 at our Highfield campus and Southampton General Hospital.
