Confocal Microscopy Facility

The CSULB Confocal Microscopy facility is a multi-user resource that permits scientists at all levels to use confocal microscopy to address questions in a diversity of fields, including (but not limited to) microbiology, cell biology, developmental biology, bioengineering and neuroscience. The facility (located in the Molecular Life Sciences Center) is always open to authorized users. It was installed in 2007 with a grant from the National Science Foundation (DBI 0722757: PI B. Pernet, co-PIs E. Gharakhanian, D. Lee, and M. Myers), and with support from the CSULB College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and the Department of Biological Sciences.
