Instrumental to the research at IMB are our Core Facilities. These operate in response to the needs of our researchers and have been specifically set up to ensure that these needs can be met. In particular, services are offered in the areas of bioinformatics, cytometry, histology, high-end microscopy, micro-array analysis and next generation sequencing.

The Core Facilities are equipped with cutting-edge technologies and are staffed by experts who provide our scientists with two levels of service. Firstly, a full service is provided in which Core Facility staff take care of the whole experimental process and deliver the results generated back to our researchers. Secondly, Core Facility staff enable researchers to carry out their own experiments by providing full training for the required equipment and methods. Following this, Core Facility staff are then on hand to advise and assist researchers in every step of their experiments.

The Core Facilities provided therefore ensure that IMB scientists always have access to the latest equipment and technologies that are required to explore new areas at the frontiers of the Life Sciences.

IMB Core Facilities invite you to attend our lectures and practical courses in Genomics, Microscopy, Bioinformatics, Cytometry and Proteomics. The program kicks off on 13 January 2015 with a lecture on Microscopy and will end in November with a practical course on Proteomics. Lectures in all fields will always be held on Tuesdays at 11:00 in the IMB seminar room (2nd floor). Practical courses will be given in the lab or, in the case of Bioinformatics, in a meeting room.



For more details, see the flyer. Lectures are open to everyone, no registration needed. To register for the practical courses, please contact the Core Facility Heads.
