Electron Microscopy Resource Center

COVID-19 Update: The Electron Microscopy Resource Center is curtailing activities beginning Monday, March 16, with the goal of full shutdown by Wednesday, March 18. Following that date, the Center will not be staffed to provide any services. Also, user accessible equipment will be shut down and not be accessible even to qualified independent users. EMRC members will still be available by email. Please see the contact page for appropriate emails.

Welcome to the Electron Microscopy Resource Center (EMRC)

The EMRC, formerly the EM service of the Bio-Imaging Resource Center, now functions as an independent resource center while maintaining close cooperative ties to the Bio-Imaging Resource Center. The EMRC provides support to University researchers for transmission- and scanning-electron microscopy. Based on center capacity, support is also available to researchers from other not-for-profit institutions. The EMRC is located in the Rockefeller Research Building (RRB), room 120.

About EMRC

EM study is used to explore the yet to be solved, ultra-structural mysteries. In recent years a vast expansion in fundamental knowledge of physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology has been achieved, but awaits integration of knowledge with other discoveries, particularly with structural studies. There is a critical need to integrate molecular functions and cellular fine structure. The EMRC at Rockefeller University, through its support of University researchers, aims to take a lead in these new scientific challenges.
