Welcome to the CMI - Delivering state of the art microscopy and imaging to NUIG's research community

The Centre for Microscopy and Imaging at NUIG (CMI) is a core facility dedicated to providing scientists with a variety of high-end light and electron microscopes along cutting-edge imaging software and analysis tools.  

Our mission is to :

  1. Provide access to high-end acquisition and analysis workstations
  2. Provide expertise in microscopy, imaging and analysis specialising in biomaterials, cell and tissue phenotypes.
  3. Maintain instruments and workstations to ensure quality and efficiency.
  4. Maintain an institute-wide image database for better and safer archiving of all image or image-related documents.
  5. Link to other European and worldwide microscopy and imaging networks.
