Department of Pathology


The microscopy facility houses a number of microscopes with the primary aim of facilitating high-quality research. The facilities available aim to provide tools to investigate both live-cell and fixed samples in 2D, 3D and 4D. 

We are able to perform light microscopy on containment level 2 samples, permitting live-cell experiments to be performed on primary cells, organoids or infected samples.


In addition to several forms of light microscopy, the facility houses a transmission electron microscope (and associated equipment) for your ultrastructural needs.

The facility is managed by Mike Hollinshead ( Mike has a huge amount of expertise in preparing samples for both light and electron microscopy, and deals routinely with cells, tissues, organoids and virology. 

Data transfer updates coming soon…
