Jenkins Microscopy Facility

The Jenkins Microscopy Facility is part of the Integrated Microscopy Core (IMCore) of the Wyoming Sensory Biology Center (SBC) funded by National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).

It is located at the ground floor of the Biological Sciences Building (room 29). Its mission is to assist researchers and students in their imaging needs of fluorescence and electron microscopy; and to increase the use of microscopes in science education.  Consultation, training or touring the facility is also available by appointment.

Since 9/1/2017, The Jenkins Microscopy Facility has become part of the Integrated Microscopy Core (IMCore) affiliated with the Wyoming Sensory Biology Center (SBC), a Biomedical Center of Research excellence (COBRE) funded by National Institute of Medical Sciences (NIGMS) through its IDEA program.  Its mission is to enhance the ability of researchers to elucidate how sensory systems work and how disease/pathological states occur.

With the support of the Wyoming SBC under grant No. P20GM121310, we have significantly expanded our advanced imaging instrumentations and its research capacities. In addition to supporting the research need of SBC investigators, this core facility opens to all UW researchers, graduate students for their research need. Any research that involves in the use of the facility is required by the federal funding agency to cite the COBRE center grant.  Here is an example phrase that can be used in your publication acknowledgement:

Research reported in this publication was supported in part by the Institutional Development Awards (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under grant number 2P20GM103432. In addition, the Zeiss LSM980 is co-funded by INBRE network, any research that involves in the use of this equipment shall acknowledge the INBRE grant (P20GM121310), in addition to  2P20GM103432.
