Electron Microscopy

You have reached web-page of the Electron Microscopy section. Detailed information can be found at the Koster lab website. More information about Thom Sharp's Lab can be found here.

The mission of the electron microscopy section is to develop and apply electron microscopy  methods and techniques to gain new information on biological systems and their cellular regulation. We develop and apply novel methods that allow zooming into the cellular architecture and visualize macromolecular structures with nm-scale resolution.

We provide a  full range of state-of-the-art equipment for specimen preparation, electron microscopy, immuno-labeling, electron tomography, single particle electron microscopy, correlative light-electron microscopy, image processing and visualization.  Our research projects focus on the research profile areas of the LUMC.

The section is part of the  Department of Molecular Cell Biology at the  Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands. The section complements the  Light Microscopy facilities of the department. The section is also intertwined with  Netherlands Center of Electron Nanoscopy (NeCEN) located in close vicinity to the laboratory. At NeCEN there is access to high performance cryo TEMs.

We welcome research collaborations on a wide variety of topics. For more information on how to setup collaborations with us on a scientific or non-scientific basis, please visit  the Koster lab website.

Our secretarial office can be reached by email and by phone: +31-71-5269200.
