The Microscopy and Image Analysis Platform (MIAP) Freiburg, was founded in 2016 with the DFG call “Gerätezentren – Core facilities” to form a highly competitive joint network for scientific infrastructure of imaging based core facilities and life science sites in Freiburg, Basel, Mulhouse and Strasbourg. As competitive and advanced technology platform, MIAP is embedded in the “Forschungsinfrastrukturen” of Freiburg University.
MIAP is established in close collaboration with networks like EuroBioimaging, German Bioimaging and NEUBIAS. Further, MIAP supports and enhances the cooperation of national and international partners from academia and industry. MIAP initiated and gives home to the international initiative “Quality Assessment and Reproducibility for Instruments & Images in Light Microscopy” – QUAREP-LiMi
