WELCOME MESSAGE

A very warm welcome to you from the Electron Microscopy Unit, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS!

The mission of the EM Unit is to provide high quality EM solutions for biomedical researchers in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University Health System, National University of Singapore, and the scientific community. We have state of the art scanning and transmission electron microscopes, sample preparation and ultramicrotomy equipment, and a core group of highly skilled and experienced staff to provide training and support for staff and students to learn and apply electron microscopy in their work.

We have recently upgraded and are now equipped with cryo-electron microscopy facilities to visualize the 3D ultrastructure of macromolecular assemblies in a frozen but natural state; as well as a correlative electron microscope for correlated imaging of the same samples at light and electron microscopic levels.

Together, the state-of-the-art microscopes and combined expertise and experience of a ‘community of microscopists’ at the EM Unit ensure that we have the hardware, software, and know-how to support in-depth microscopy research.

Please contact us to discuss how the EM Unit’s facilities may be of help in your research, and let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions.

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

W.Y. Ong
