We are happy to welcome visitors in the Electron Microscopy Core 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 EMCF is therefore, currently, not hosting visitors at this time. We will inform you here, once EMCF is back in operation.

If you would like to apply as a visitor in the EMCF, 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 EMCF currently participates in several initiatives supporting visitor access. Please find them here:

  1. Euro-BioImaging open access
    Open access to a broad range of state-of-the-art technologies in biological and biomedical 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.
