The UPMC Hillman Cancer Center’s Cell and Tissue Imaging Facility (CTIF) is an integral, cancer-focused component of the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Biologic Imaging.
The CTIF is housed in two locations. The first is within the Center for Biologic Imaging, in the Biomedical Science Tower of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. This space was designed as a dedicated, state-of-the-art imaging center, and has fully equipped microscopy suites, computer labs, and wet and dry bench space for cell culture, light and electron microscopic preparations.
The second location is a satellite facility housed within the Hillman Cancer Center. This facility is designed to provide more convenient access to basic confocal, live cell and wide field microscopy to Hillman investigators on the Shadyside campus. This resource is an adjunct to the Oakland resource, which provides access to advanced technologies and electron microscopy.
