Mission Statement

The mission of the CML@RIT is to provide RIT faculty and students with a multidisciplinary imaging research and training facility centered around confocal microscopy. Important objectives are:

  • Enhance research capabilities

  • Provide an environment that promotes multidisciplinary collaborations

  • Involve undergraduate and graduate students to support their training and preparation.


The RIT confocal microscopy lab is supported through the National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation Program (#1126629), the RIT Office of the Vice President for Research, the Kate Gleason College of Engineering, and the RIT College of Science



All images on this site were produced in the CML@RIT.
