MICROSCOPE PLAN: Scientists from the region have been asked to help develop a new generation of microscopes. 

Led by York University and the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute (CRUK LRI), the project aims to combine light and electron microscopes into a single system to analyse how cells and tissues change during disease and infection.

The Medical Research Council, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council have announced funding of more than £1m for the project, with additional investment from York University, CRUK and commercial collaborators.
