We are again accepting proposals from scientists who would like to conduct experiments at the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at Janelia Research Campus! The deadline to submit a proposal is 17:00 (US eastern time), April 15, 2022.

The AIC makes imaging technologies developed at Janelia available to the scientific community before the instruments can be purchased commercially. Scientific investigators from nonprofit organizations anywhere in the world may apply to use the facility.

The RII Imaging Cores have been re-structured and re-named (February 1, 2022) to better reflect their function rather than their location. No instruments were relocated as part of this re-structuring.

Imaging Cores - Optical now covers the optical microscopes located in both the Marley and Life Sciences North buildings. Patty Jansma will continue to manage the microscopes in the Marley building and Doug Cromey will continue to manage the optical microscopes in LSN.
