Indiana Center for Biological Microscopy


Funding from the University, the Medical School, the Division of Nephrology, the NIH and the Lilly Endowment has given Indiana University a world-class center for biomedical microscopy. The Indiana Center for Biological Microscopy is a light microscopy Core Facility that provides state-of-the-art imaging capabilities to Indiana University researchers. Researchers are trained to operate facility equipment, which they may then use independently at a reasonable hourly rate.


The Center has provided state-of-the-art imaging capabilities to IU Researchers since 1996. In 2002 the ICBM was designated as an NIDDK George O'Brien Center for Advanced Microscopic Analysis, whose objective is to develop methods of intravital multiphoton microscopy and 3-dimensional microscopy for renal research.
