Welcome to our Imaging Network

Sharing research infrastructure

We promote and support the joint use and sustainable further development of biomedical imaging technologies at the University of Münster. All scientists at our University can use and make available equipment, methods and expertise through our network. Our offers are also open to external users.

Our Imaging Network is a cooperation network of the Cells in Motion Interfaculty Centre. This central scientific institution at our University promotes and supports cooperation among scientists in the fields of cell dynamics and imaging across working groups and faculties.

The focus of our network is currently on microscopy and will be extended to preclinical imaging in the future. In this area, the Core Unit "Preclinical Imaging eXperts" of the Medical Faculty already offers opportunities for cooperation and support. Via our Imaging Network, we will further link the entire spectrum of biomedical imaging at our University. In future, working groups from different faculties will also bring together a core of the wide-ranging imaging infrastructure in a spatial sense – in the Multiscale Imaging Centre, which is the central research building of our network and is currently under construction.
