Research and teaching facilities within the department are well-maintained and supplied with the latest in technological aids as detailed below. Other scientific instrumentation and expertise may be found in the other basic sciences departments. All these high quality facilities are important for quality work, but the fact remains that the students, staff, and faculty are the focus of this department and the basis for its success.
Research facilities within the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, including the Edward C. Carlson Imaging and Image Analysis Core Facility, are well-maintained and supplied with sophisticated instrumentation and technological aids. Other scientific instrumentation and expertise are nearby in the other basic sciences departments. This means that a full complement of instrumentation and equipment for research in structural biology, cellular biology, developmental biology, and/or neurosciences are readily available through this and other basic sciences departments, individual investigators, and the multi-user core facilities such as the Edward C. Carlson Imaging and Image Analysis Core Facility and Mass Spectrometry Core. Examples include multiphoton microscopy (Olympus Fluoview 1000), confocal microscopy (Zeiss LSM 510 Meta and Olympus Fluoview 300), wide-field microscopy for microinjection techniques, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy (Hitachi 7500 TEM), scanning electron microscopy (Hitachi 4700 field emission SEM), sequencers and other molecular biology equipment, computer work stations, Sutter programmable glass microelectrode puller, high-speed centrifuges, liquid scintillation counters, and cell culture facilities.
A number of up-to-date facilities are available through the School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Three amphitheaters with digital video capabilities (video projectors, Internet access, cable, digital video camera, DVD, etc.) are available to all of the departments. Modern teaching laboratories, also equipped for digital image projections, are available on the base floor. Our department maintains its own library and reading/conference room. The University of North Dakota Bookstore and Library of the Health Sciences literally are minutes away.
