The Center for Advanced Microscopy at UTHealth at Houston, a Nikon Center of Excellence, is a state-of-the-art microscopy facility serving the Texas Medical Center. Our mission is to facilitate the utilization of advanced light microscopy techniques and quantitative image analysis to advance the cutting-edge research programs of McGovern Medical School, UTHealth, and the greater Texas Medical Center.

We are excited to be officially designated as a Nikon Center of Excellence at UTHealth.

Our core facility staff provides training on each imaging system, microscopy best practices, and assistance with image analysis. The imaging systems available within the Center include widefield, scanning confocal, TIRF, FLIM, and super-resolution techniques (structured illumination and STORM/PALM).
