For long-term microscopy of cell cultures, the institute operates an IncuCyte microscope in cooperation with research teams from the Institute of Neurology, the Clinic for Inner Medicine II, and the department of Human Genetics. Focus is on the observation of neurons and non-neuronal cells under chemokine treatment. (Funded by: European Fonds for Regional Development)
