Organization profile

The University Imaging Centers (UIC) network of facilities comprises the University’s largest shared research facility for imaging biological and physical samples, large and small.

The UIC's goal is to provide rigorous, reliable, and affordable access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies and professional guidance in experimental design, sample preparation, and data analysis. Our staff works collaboratively with researchers to develop and apply new imaging technologies and make the UIC the place to go to advance our understanding of the unseen world.

Recognized as a Nikon Center of Excellence, the UIC offers its users access to multiple modes of imaging, including optical, ultrasound, microPET/CT, and spatialomics approaches along with sophisticated image analysis tools to reach their discovery goals. The UIC is open to researchers from all University departments, as well as external academic institutions and industry.
