Helping Investigators Achieve Their Research Goals
The UF College of Medicine Electron Microscopy (CoM EM) Core is based in the Division of Nephrology, Hypertension, and Renal Transplantation and has been in operation since 1998. We provide support for researchers from the University of Florida at large, as well as investigators outside of UF, who need ultrastructural methods for their projects, including access to equipment, consultation, training, and technical services. The Director, Jill W.Verlander, DVM, and staff have decades of experience using ultrastructural methods in biomedical research. All equipment and technical expertise needed for conventional transmission electron microscopy are available in the CoM EM Core. In addition to electron microscopy, we offer services related to the use of polyester wax embedding medium for immunohistochemistry. Fees for services and equipment use are based on cost-recovery in accordance with federal guidelines.
