The Cell  Imaging Core (CIC) at K.U.Leuven is a collaborative network of scientists who are using fluorescence microscopy to investigate biological questions.The CIC is meant to integrate and improve the expertise in fluorescence imaging and advanced microscopy, ranging from single molecule visualization to imaging of integrated cell systems. The CIC manages and optimizes the use of classic and advanced imaging systems, most of them hosted by the Lab of Enteric NeuroScience (LENS) located at Campus Gasthuisberg (2-photon and single photon confocal microscopes designed for live imaging) as well as advanced equipment and know-how for single-molecule and correlation microspectroscopy at the Campus Arenberg. The CIC operates in close collaboration with LiMoNe (VIB, imaging network). More info? Contact Dr. Werend Boesmans or Prof. Pieter Vanden Berghe via
