Application and Fee Schedule


Applications are required prior to gaining access to the equipment. The Microscopy and Imaging Core Committee reviews all user applications to determine how each applicant will best be served: by training to become an independent user, or by using our fee for service option. Please understand that the application process does not automatically guarantee approval. Priority will be given to NIH-funded Wilmer investigators as required by our NEI Core Grant for Vision Research. Other applicants will be considered as equipment usage permits.

Please complete the MICF user application using one form per applicant and per piece of large equipment. You may also use this form to request estimates for TEM fee for service work or our EM skills training package.

All user applications should be submitted to the Facility Administrator, Mary Ellen Pease at They will be reviewed by the MICF committee and the decision returned by email.
