The Cells in Motion Interfaculty Centre (CiM) brings together and supports researchers from medicine, biology, chemistry, pharmacy, mathematics, computer science and physics who join forces to work on a big topic: They investigate how cells behave in organisms. To this end, they employ and develop innovative imaging methods. Our interdisciplinary subject area "cell dynamics and imaging" is a research focus at the University of Münster.
