WEST HAVEN, USA & WETZLAR, GERMANY: On Monday, October 20, 2014, Yale University West Campus will open the doors to a new microscopy Center of Excellence made possible through a partnership with Leica Microsystems.
Housed in a newly created core facility, the Leica Center of Excellence at Yale West Campus will provide scientists with access to cutting-edge imaging tools to resolve sub-cellular structures and forward scientific discoveries.
This relationship will afford researchers access to expert technical and applications support, along with instrumentation which Leica Microsystems will continuously update with the latest technology. In addition, Yale and Leica Microsystems will collaborate in the development of novel imaging technologies.
Through this partnership, Leica Microsystems gains access to world-class scientists and the latest developments in research applications. Yale and Leica Microsystems will work together to test prototype products and share ideas on how to improve imaging workflows.
"We are extremely excited to embark on this journey of discovery with Yale University as our first such partnership in the USA," said Doug Reed, GM of Leica Microsystems North America. "This co-operation will provide some of the best scientific minds access to imaging tools previously out of reach, plus allow Leica Microsystems ready access to new ideas from outstanding scientific leaders, which will be used to guide development of tomorrow's innovations."
