The Cell Imaging Core (CIC) is a centralized facility where end users receive the support needed to carry out conventional and advanced imaging techniques. The unit has combined resources to provide state-of-the-art equipment that is open to all researchers. CIC is part of the Biocenter Finland Infrastructure Network on Biological Imaging. We cooperate with Turku Bioimaging and EuroBioImaging to improve the accessibility of imaging technologies among the bioscience community internationally.
The primary goal of the unit is to enhance the research and teaching environment of BioCity Turku.
To meet these goals, the unit
