The Princess Royal opens new microscopy centre at UCL

International Edu News

A state-of-the-art centre for advanced biomedical research imaging was opened 11 February 2020 at UCL by Princess Royal, giving researchers access to cutting-edge new microscopes from ZEISS. The UCL Multiscale Imaging Centre, in partnership with ZEISS (to be known as UZMIC), is the first ZEISS laboratory in Europe outside of Germany, strengthening UCL’s connections across Europe.

UCL researchers will have exclusive access to new and emerging technologies, enabling seamless dynamic biomedical imaging across biological scales, from single-molecule resolution to organelles, cells and tissues, moving from single samples to high throughput analysis. The equipment will allow scientists to address fundamental questions in cell and developmental biology, while driving forward the search for treatments for conditions including infectious and inherited diseases, cancer and dementia.

The Princess is Chancellor of the University of London, of which UCL is a member institution.
