ZEISS and Kyoto University have signed a new strategic research agreement, which includes opening the ZEISS iCeMS Innovation Core, a collaborative laboratory at the University’s Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS).
The newly established framework will provide Kyoto University with access to the latest ZEISS microscopy technologies.
In return ZEISS will receive deeper insights into the world-class research, including new trends in the application of microscopy technology.
“Further evolution of 4D imaging technologies is essential to answering difficult questions in cell biology. Based on our long-standing collaboration, we are excited to assemble a powerful team of iCeMS cell biologists and ZEISS microscopists to enhance our capacities for advancing bioimaging technologies,” says Mineko Kengaku, Deputy Director of iCeMS and Professor at the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences at Kyoto University.
“The ZEISS iCeMS Innovation Core will also act as a shared facility and provide support for researchers needing to acquire imaging data using the leading microscopy technology,” she adds.
