Feel free to contact any of the people listed below if you have any questions regarding their facilities.

The University of Auckland (Waipapa Taumata Rau) has a number of microscopy facilities and
a wide range of expertise. The Biomedical Imaging Research Unit is a very good starting point. It houses both light and electron microscopes, a team of highly trained staff with a breadth of knowledge across experimental design, image acquisition and image analysis. It also has a mass spectrometer, high content screening and whole section imaging resources.
