DBM Microscopy Core Facility
Department of Biomedicine Basel:
The mission of the Department of Biomedicine (DBM) at the University of Basel is to promote integrated research excellence in biomedical science. We emphasize research in neurobiology, infection and immunity, cancer, and stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. The DBM provides a stimulating environment with state-of-the-art facilities, enabling biomedical research of the highest quality, while also training the next generation of leaders in basic and clinical research. Central to our mission, non-clinical and clinical scientists work side by side to foster a translational environment across all of our disease-relevant scientific themes, benefiting the lives of patients in areas of unmet need.
Microscopy Core Facility:
Light microscopy has revolutionized modern biology by creating a window for researchers to “see” the cellular and molecular world. The DBM Microscopy Facility enables researchers with limited microscopy knowledge to become experts and it allows experts to do creative experiments. The DBM currently holds two microscopy facilities located at Hebelstrasse and at Mattenstrasse. Both facilities are used free of charge and there are more than 20 microscopes of various types available.
