Norwegian Molecular Imaging Consortium

– NorMIC

Subcellular Interactions and Imaging

The Norwegian Molecular Imaging Consortium (NorMIC) is one of eight technology platforms forming the pillars of the FUGE II program. FUGE represents a national program to develop and strengthen research in functional genomics in Norway. NorMIC is organized in a network with nodes in Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger, Trondheim and Tromsø. The node at NTNU in Trondheim is called Subcellular Interactions and Imaging, and is an interdepartmental collaboration between Department of Biology, Department of Biotechnology, and Department of Physics at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology, and Department of Cancer Research and Molecular Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine.

We offer advanced microscopy facilities located at the Natural Science Building and at the Medical-Technical Research Center (MTFS). The instrumentation includes several confocal laser scanning microscopes, multiphoton microscopy, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, total internal reflection microscopy, and atomic force microscopy.

NorMICs mission is to create a dynamic and productive environment for researchers at NTNU and for our national and international collaborators, offering users the latest technology in molecular imaging as well as technical support and expertise. The network will improve the cooperation between scientists, and further develop state-of-the-art technologies.
