The Nikon IMaging CEntre at the Curie’s Institut (NIMCE) promotes the improvement and development of bio-imaging technologies and their application to the life sciences.
The NIMCE is to provide to a wide community of scientists throughout France, with the support of Nikon France, a large number of up-to-date imaging methodologies to monitor the living cell activity at high spatial and temporal rate, and as a consequence to propose an adequate management of the massive data generated with these approaches.
The NIMCE is an Institut Curie and CNRS core facility for light microscopy developed in partnership with Nikon France SAS. The NIMCE is supported by the following corporations, as a corporate partners, Photometrics, Molecular Device and as a corporate contributors Dell, Life Imaging System, TMC and Photonlines by supplying both microscopy equipment and experimental materials.

The mission of the NIMCE is to:
  • To support research while giving the researchers access to most advanced technologies in the field of cellular imaging and the analyse’s and processing’s Imaging Datas.
  • Provide trainning courses, individual instruction, and consulting on advanced light microscopy techniques
  • Stimulate innovation in biological research by providing investigators access to cutting edge microscopy resources with a particular emphasis on developing novel imaging solutions to systems biology challenges
  • Promote cross-discipline collaborations by providing an exciting intellectual commons centered on light microscopy
  • To become a demonstration platform for Nikon’s commercial prospecting.

Nikon has developed a group of world leading imaging centers in order to provide researchers with the latest in cutting edge technology for imaging and microscopy. The NIMCE (NIMCE@IC-CNRS) is Nikon’s seventh global imaging centre providing researchers at academic institutions with access to the most advanced technology and optimum conditions for their ground-breaking scientific research. The eight other Nikon centres of excellence are based at University of Heidelberg in Germany ( NIC@HD), Harvard Medical School in North America ( NIC@HMS), Hokkaido University in Japan ( NIC@HU), Oxford University ( NOMIC), University of California at San Francisco ( NIC@UCSF), Singapore Bioimaging Consortium( NIC@SBIC), Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine ( NIC@NU-FSM) and recently the King's College London ( NIC@King's).
