  2. Resource Description
    The Campus Microscopy and Imaging Facility (CMIF) serves University faculty staff and students as well as researchers outside Ohio State. The CMIF offers a full range of light, confocal, live-cell, super-resolution, and electron microscopes. Sample preparation equipment is available. Expert support and technical assistance enables users to collect and analyze high quality images. This facility also functions as the Microscopy Shared Resource (MSR) which facilitates cancer research by providing an accessible centrally-organized resource with technical support for confocal, light, live cell microscopy, super-resolution microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Highly qualified faculty and staff provide training and advice for sample preparation, processing fresh tissues, sectioning epoxy-embedded samples, basic microscopy, and advanced training in live animal multiphoton microscopy. The MSR, a part of the larger Campus Microscopy and Imaging Facility under the OSU Office of Research, is managed by the OSUCCC. The MSR is located within OSUCCC space in the Biomedical Research Tower. The ability to offer competitive pricing and exceptional service can be largely attributed to the generous support of outstanding institutional resources, including partnerships with the OSUCCC, the Office of Research, OSU Colleges and Institutes, and state and federal grants. The Microscopy Shared Resource (MSR) gives researchers access to state-of-the-art microscopes and to services ranging from standard light and electron microscopy to leading-edge, live-animal, multiphoton microscopy. MSR experts support high-level cancer research with the latest microscopy techniques.
