Head of Node: Marcelo Nollmann
The Montpellier node is composed of a tight collaboration between research/development teams and microscopy research platforms. The main objective of the Montpellier node is to develop, implement and provide access of state-of-the-art optical microscopy systems allowing microscopic imaging from unicellular organisms to whole animals. Specifically, our emphasis is on fluctuation and super-resolution microscopies, high-throughput high-content microscopies, and cellular in vivo imaging and manipulation.
The Montpellier node is composed of a microscopy development and research facility (MARS of the CBS), two microscopy facilities (MRI and IPAM), and two research and development groups. Several active and synergistic collaborations exist between these different entities in which R&D groups contribute their expertise in optical/instrument development and platforms contribute their savoir-faire in user service and in general logistics.
