The Robert P. Apkarian Integrated Electron Microscopy Core (IECM), one of the Emory Integrated Core Facilities (EICF), is supported by the Emory College of Arts and Sciences, the Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance and the Emory University School of Medicine. We provide investigators with instrumentation, technical assistance, and training in transmission and scanning electron microscopy. Please contact us so that we can discuss your experimental needs.
