Yale University, Leica Microsystems establish Microscopy Center of Excellence

On October 20, 2014, the Yale University West Campus (New Haven, CT) will open the doors to a new microscopy Center of Excellence made possible through a partnership with Leica Microsystems (Wetzlar, Germany). Housed in a newly created core facility, the Leica Center of Excellence at Yale West Campus will provide scientists with access to cutting-edge imaging tools to resolve subcellular structures and forward scientific discoveries. This relationship will afford researchers access to expert technical and applications support, along with instrumentation that Leica Microsystems will continuously update with the latest technology. In addition, Yale and Leica Microsystems will collaborate in the development of novel imaging technologies.

Through this partnership, Leica Microsystems gains access to world-class scientists and the latest developments in research applications. Yale and Leica Microsystems will work together to test prototype products and share ideas on how to improve imaging workflows.

Christopher Incarvito, Ph.D., director of research operations and technology at Yale University's West Campus, invites scientists to take part in the Opening Ceremonies kicking off October 20th and continuing October 21st. The two days will feature scientific, applications, and technology talks, roundtable discussions, and a keynote address from Joerg Bewersdorf, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Cell Biology and of Biomedical Engineering at the Yale School of Medicine. Then, through October 31, Leica Microsystems will be hosting a super-resolution workshop with free access and sample preparation guidance using ground-state depletion microscopy (GSDIM) and stimulated emission depletion (STED) technologies. On campus, Yale University scientists also are invited for preparatory morning seminars on sample preparation October 7-8.
