Research Center in Microscopic Structures, (CIEMIC, for its acronym in Spanish)
CIEMIC has four basic lines of research of its own:
Ultrastructure of Biological Systems
Ultrastructure of Pathological Systems
Ultrastructure of Materials
To lead the generation of new knowledge about the microscopic structure of biological and non-biological systems using high-resolution microscopy techniques seeking a high level of quality, innovation, and diversification in research, teaching and social action activities in the country.
Research, teaching and social action.
Scanning and transmission electron microscopy
Elemental analysis (EDX)
In the biological field, diagnosis of infectious agents, histopathological diagnosis, plagues control, taxonomy, phytopathology, ultrastructure of commercial species, morphology and classification of species and development of new technologies are carried
In materials, studies about the morphology and microstructure of materials and elementary analysis are carried out
Advising students and professors about research techniques and procedures with the use of high-resolution microscopy tools.
The Council of the External Link Unit has within its functions everything related to social action activities
Analysis of requests for exemption of the microscopy services for “tesiarios” and researchers to facilitate them the access to this tool
