Project description

The Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) Expertise Centre allows UGent researchers analyzing biological samples at the ultrastructural level. The expertise centre prepares the samples, gives access to imaging infrastructure and assists in interpreting TEM images. Establishing a UGent expertise centre will cluster the existing expertise, will allow the development of innovative techniques and increase the accessibility and visibility of such facilities.
