About us

The National Microscopy Infrastructure, NMI is a Swedish infrastructure for the use and support of advanced microscopy in life science. NMI was founded in April 2016 with the financial support from VR-RFI and cofinancing from the participating universities. The four participating universities are; Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm University (SU), Umeå University (UmU) and University of Gothenburg (GU).

The aim of NMI is to provide access to equipment and competence in microscopy for the life science research community. NMI will also coordinate national and international knowledge exchange in microscopy.

Our service to researchers

NMI aims to provide:

  1. An internationally competitive Infrastructure to enable Swedish life science researchers to perform world-class research projects using highly specialized microscopy techniques.

  2. An infrastructure equipped with a wide range of microscopy techniques for highly specialized microscopy analysis that is accessible to all academic scientists in Sweden on equal terms.

  3. An organization supporting national networking of Swedish universities and core facilities in the field of life science microscopy.
