van Leeuwenhoek Center for Advanced Microscopy (LCAM)

The LCAM is a collaboration between three innovative Advanced Light Microscopy groups at Amsterdam UMC, location AMC (Cellular Imaging, ALM), the Faculty of Science (FNWI) of the University of Amsterdam 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).
