EM-PICT has recognized expertise in the field of cellular and molecular imaging (cell biology, developmental biology and structural biology) in normal and disease state and has skills in advanced electron microscopy applications. We propose a panel of established approaches of cellular-EM and cryo-EM. We also developed and implemented methods for sample preparation, cell tomography, cryo-tomography, correlative-light microscopy (CLEM) and image analysis.
The following figure shows the various applications and techniques available on the electron-microscopy facility.
Training and teaching activities:
The platform’s engineers organise and participate in training and education courses. These training courses have been yet organized either by the teaching unit of the Institut Curie, or by the CNRS, INSERM, universities, microscopy networks (Société Francaise des Microscopies) Workshops and Courses (e.g. for CLEM) or the FranceBioImaging infrastructure.
