We are happy to welcome visitors
in the Advanced Light Microscopy Facility if capacity allows.

Please note that visitors from EMBL’s Member or Associated Member States
are our first priority.

The EMBL research site in Heidelberg is currently closed to external visitors and most staff are working from home. The ALMF is therefore, currently, not hosting visitors at this time. We will inform you here, once ALMF is back in operation.

However, we offer remote access under certain circumstances. Please contact us, if you are interested.
We are looking forward to discussing your needs together.

If you would like to apply as a visitor in the ALMF, please contact us by email including a short overview of your project. We will discuss the feasibility of your project internally and in case of a positive evaluation we will contact you for a more detailed meeting over the phone, via Skype or video conference.

The ALMF currently participates in several initiatives supporting visitor access. Please find them here:

  1. Euro-BioImaging open access
    The ALMF is part of the EMBL node in Euro-BioImaging. Together with the Electron Microscopy Core Faciility (EMCF) at EMBL Heidelberg and the Mesoscopic Imaging Facility (MIF) at EMBL Barcelona, the EMBL node offers open access to a broad range of state-of-the-art technologies in biological imaging for life scientists.
  2. Christian Boulin fellowship
    The Fellowships support travel and accommodation costs of young scientists visiting EMBL Core Facilities at the different EMBL sites.
