About the CMI

The Centre for Microscopy and Imaging  is an NUIG core facility specialising in advanced microscopy techniques. This centre is available for students, researchers, academic and technical staff. Our highly experienced, specialist staff are committed to providing a supportive and resourceful working  environment where researchers can expect expert advice and comprehensive training that equips them to  achieve their goals. Our challenge is to meet present needs of researchers for microstructural characterisation and to equip NUIG  to meet new horizons by enabling cutting edge microscopy techniques. The CMI works with research teams from all disciplines and departments  in NUIG including  AnatomyChemistry,Biochemistry, Engineering, CURAM , and REMEDI . We also welcome collaboration and partnership with industry.
