About Us
The Leduc Bioimaging Facility is named after Elizabeth H. Leduc (biography), a biologist who greatly advanced our understanding of cellular structure and function using electron microscopy.  The facility was established in Partridge Hall with the purchase of a transmission electron microscope in 1983 and a scanning electron microscope in 1991.  The facility subsequently moved to the BioMed Center and a confocal microscope was purchased in 1995.  The facility has been significantly expanded in recent years: the electron microscopes were upgraded for digital imaging, and additional imaging systems were purchased, including three fluorescence microscopes and three confocal laser scanning microscopes.  The facility currently offers training and equipment at two locations: in Sidney Frank Hall for Life Sciences and the Laboratories for Molecular Medicine.  The facility maintains nine main imaging systems and serves more than 200 users.
