Skidmore Microscopy Imaging Center - SMIC
The Skidmore Microscopy Imaging Center is a multi-user, interdisciplinary, core microscopy facility comprised of a modern suite of light and confocal microscopes, an advanced electron microscopy laboratory, as well as supporting ancillary equipment. The Center was established in 2002, and, as the first of its kind at Skidmore, has grown with support through multiple grants from the National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation Program, as well as through generous donations from both the College and outside donors. The mission of SMIC is to facilitate and promote microscopy-based research and teaching across multiple departments, provide students and faculty with access to state-of-the-art instrumentation, act as a collection site for microscopic images, and provide access and outreach to the surrounding community.
