Launch event of the Advanced Optical Microscopy Centre @ UHasselt

New optical imaging instrumentation has recently been acquired by the Biomedical Research Institute (BIOMED), with support of the FWO-Hercules foundation and the province of Limburg. This acquisition consolidates the forefront position of UHasselt in advanced live-cell and dynamic optical microscopy and opens the path to optical super-resolution microscopy.
