Shared Resources and Core Facilities

Imaging Technologies and Applications

The Emerging Imaging Technologies and Applications Developing Shared Resource (EITADSR) serves as a proof-of-concept hub for conducting innovative and rigorous fundamental cancer biology research from subcellular to cellular length scales in conjunction with developing and translating advanced imaging technologies and applications. EITADSR promotes synergies between its imaging technology developers and cancer biology researchers at The University of Kansas Cancer Center. EITADSR also provides research training and career development programs to ensure a talented and diverse workforce engaged in cellular tumor cancer biology imaging research.

EITADSR, together with the University of Kansas Microscopy and Analytical Imaging Research Resource Core Laboratory (MAI) imaging scientists, creates and benchmarks novel imaging tools, reagents, approaches using sophisticated imaging technologies including total internal reflection microscopy, laser scanning and spinning disk confocal and automated image acquisition for screening of multiwell samples. EITADSR assists users with experimental design, image acquisition and data interpretation.

Collaboration between EITADSR and the MAI enables users' imaging research at the level of the whole animal, individual cells and molecules inside the cells. The shared resource also offers  instrumentation and expertise for light and electron microscopies to provide multiscale and multidimensional correlative imaging research of living and fixed cells and tissues.
