The Biological Imaging & Stem Cell Core provides a multi-disciplinary platform that offers scientific and technical support in the areas of biological imaging, histopathology, and stem cell biology. The core aims to promote the study of disease mechanisms, to understand relevant physiological and pathological information, to speed up the study on cancer and other diseases, and to develop new treatments and diagnostic methods.

Missions:

  • Provide state-of-the-art imaging services of small animals and human;
    Develop and validate novel multimodal imaging techniques for biological systems and materials;
  • Provide a variety of techniques and professional advice in histology, immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization;
  • Provide consultation, technical services and training in human pluripotent stem cell technology;
  • Provide cell culture quality control, cell banking and cell lines; and
  • Collaborate with investigators to validate new technologies and establish unique procedures for specific projects in relevant areas.
