Research Activities

The Biological Optical Microscopy Platform makes available state-of-the art research equipment to the students and staff of the University of Melbourne, as well as the wider community. The Platform combines the Optical Microscopy instrumentation of the Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute, the School of Botany and the Departments of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Anatomy & Neuroscience, Microbiology & Immunology and Medicine (RMH). It operates under the umbrella of the University's Advanced Microscopy Facility.
The Platform specialises in meeting the needs of biomedical researchers and provides a complementary suite of capabilities, located in or linked to PC2 and pathogen handling capabilities. The Platform provides access to optimal live cell imaging and conventional confocal microscopy, as well as pioneering microscopy instrumentation, including 2-photon microscopy and Super-Resolution Optical Microscopy.
