The mission of the NICHD Microscopy and Imaging Core (MIC) is to provide high-end light and electron microscopy services to all NICHD scientists. The Core is designed as a multi-user facility where investigators can, with a minimum expense of time and effort, prepare, image, and analyze their samples. Located in the 5th and 6th floors of Building 49, the facility is staffed with three full-time microscopists working under the supervision of James Russell. Vincent Schram oversees the light-microscopy operations and IT infrastructure, Lynne Holtzclaw supports light microscopy and immunohistochemistry, and Louis (Chip) Dye manages the electron microscopy arm of the facility.
