Tübingen Structural Microscopy (TSM)

Tübingen Structural Microscopy Core Facility (TSM)

As one of the five Core Facilities within the infrastructure of the University of Tübingen, Tübingen Structural Microscopy (TSM) coordinates the existing resources in (cryo) electron microscopy of the Departments of Biology and Earth Sciences and the Center for Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP) at the Campus Morgenstelle. The TSM expands the already existing Network Electron Microscopy Tübingen, which was founded in 2007 as an informal association of 15 working groups.


The TSM brings together scientists from the geosciences, life sciences and materials sciences and support them in their research by providing methodological advice and training. This offer includes support starting with sample preparation, through instrument operation and imaging, to image interpretation and analysis. In addition, special courses are offered for the methodological training of young academics.
