SCI-MED (Super-Resolution Confocal/Multiphoton Imaging for Multiparametric Experimental Designs) is a light microscopy facility at the Institute for Experimental Cardiovascular Medicine (IEKM), which was established with the dedicated goal to facilitate experimental cardiovascular research in Freiburg with advanced microscopy methods and systems. The microscopes were financed by funds from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG: 44%), the Ministry for Science, Research and Arts in Baden-Württemberg (MWK: 44%) and from the budget of IEKM (12%).
In principle, SCI-MED is available for use by researchers from across the Medical Faculty, the wider University of Freiburg, and external collaborators. A key criterion is that users have projects requiring complex multiparametric experimental designs that cannot reasonably be accommodated at the Life Imaging Center Freiburg (LIC) or at other imaging resources in Freiburg. Cardiovascular research will be given priority. SCI-MED is listed in the DFG RIsources database (https://risources.dfg.de/detail/RI_00484_en.html).
