Umeå University becomes national resource for advanced electron microscopy
Date:3/28/2014

Ume University in Sweden will be a national resource for advanced electron microscopy thanks to a contribution of SEK 57 million. Scientists across the country will be able to use the techniques for research, including detailed studies of microorganisms that cause infectious diseases.

"Sweden needs a national platform with a state-of-the-art electron microscopy facility to meet the future needs of visualization in medical, chemical and biological research. Ume will now become a central node in a national network of research groups working together to improve the methods. This is not only a strength for our researchers, but also for the university as a whole," says Lena Gustafsson, Vice-Chancellor at Ume University.

The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation is investing SEK 37 million to develop the platform. The main applicants are Bernt Eric Uhlin and Linda Sandblad, Ume Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR), who along with colleagues at Ume University, Karolinska Institutet, Linkping University, Lund University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences have developed plans for a national platform in Ume.

Ume University is also supporting the venture with another SEK 15 million. Moreover, the Kempe Foundation is investing SEK 5 million, which allows the acquisition of the most advanced and powerful equipment for electron microscopy.

"Thanks to the funding we can make a major upgrade of our existing technology, we will, for example, be able to create 3D electron microscopy images with the best possible resolution and visualize molecular details of bacteria and other cells," says Linda Sandblad, group leader at UCMR and director of Ume Core Facility Electron Microscopy (UCEM), located in the Ume University's Chemical Biological Centre (KBC), where the new equipment will be included.

"This new grant further strengthens our commitment to scientific infrastructure within the KBC, "said Per Gardestrm professor
