The Microscopy Imaging Core is located in the Research Core Facility on the sixth floor of the Biomedical Research Institute.  This is a shared user facility that provides access to advanced microscopes as well as the expertise of dedicated imaging specialists. The microscopes are open to all members at LSUHSC-Shreveport and outside users. We are happy to assist you with instrument training, experimental design, image acquisition, and image analysis.  We encourage you to contact us prior to beginning a new project.

All users must be trained by the RCF staff before using the microscopes. For training request, please contact Dr. Chaowei Shang.
