Hotel Description

LCAM is a formal collaboration between three innovative microscopy centres at the Faculty of Science (FNWI) of the University of Amsterdam, the Academic Medical Centre (AMC) and the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI).
The formalized collaboration capitalizes on a large degree of synergy between the principle investigators in developing, adapting and applying advanced microscopy for use in cell biology. Besides delivering access to the diverse advanced microscopy instruments, LCAM has developed as a leading centre in functional live cell imaging (FRET, FLIM, FCCS, FCS, FRAP and spectral imaging).
This group participates in NL-BioImaging AM (http://www.eurobioimaging.nl).
