This image shows a mouse mammary tumor. It was taken with a so-called two-photon microscope. Tumor cells are visible in green, collagen fibers in red, and fat deposits in magenta. The Short-Wave-Infrared Microscope (SWIM) that is built as part of the FAIR CHARM project will enable to visualize such structures at unprecedented tissue depth. © Fernanda Ramos Gomes / MPI-NAT

Millions in funding for groundbreaking microscopy developments

The research project FAIR CHARM aims to apply findings from basic scientific research to clinical applications with the aid of high-resolution, real-time imaging. The EU is funding the project with six million euro. The range of expertise is covered by an interdisciplinary consortium of six international universities and research institutions as well as three enterprises. Also involved is a team headed by MBExC member Frauke Alves at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Multidisciplinary Sciences and the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG).
