Merged from the former Integrated Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility and School of Medicine Electron Microscopy Core, the Robert P. Apkarian Integrated Electron Microscopy Core is a university wide research resource core located in Cherry L. Emerson Hall on the Emory campus. The IEMC’s operation is monitored by a User Advisory Committee and the University Core Facility Oversight Committee.
The core provides investigators from all areas of the university with instrumentation, technical assistance, as well as training in transmission and scanning electron microscopy. In addition to the expertise in overall electron microscopy methodology, the core is highly regarded for its experience in immuno-electron microscopy and high resolution cryo-secondary electron imaging. The core produces high quality work and offers flexible accessibility to meet researchers needs for both small and large research projects.
The core operates on a “first come, first serve” basis, although projects with grant or publication deadlines may be prioritized. The IEMC also welcomes investigators from other universities and industrial institutes.
The Core Facilities at Emory are here to support your research. In order to ensure that the appropriate recognition is attributed to the facilities, please acknowledge the facilities on all publications.
