The Cellular Imaging Shared Resource (CISR) is a full-service microscopy laboratory providing access to equipment and technical support for electron, brightfield/fluorescence and confocal/multiphoton microscopy; it is available throughout the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Wake Forest University and the entire institution for both clinical and research purposes.


A shared resource of the Comprehensive Cancer Center with a mission to provide access for Cancer Center members and others to advanced microscopy instruments, technical support for specimen preparation, and scientific guidance in planning and applying advanced microscopy techniques.


The Co-Directors of the Cellular Imaging Shared Resource are Drs. Frank C Marini PhD, and Barry DeYoung MD. Dr. Marini has over 15 years of experience using fluorescence, confocals, multiphoton, and multispectral digital imaging, as well as having an active research program in the tumor microenviroment. Dr. DeYoung is a pathologist with clinical specialties in surgical pathology. Dr. DeYoung also has several years of experience in basic science research, including animal models.


The CISR is located in two sites to serve the WFSM scientific community. The Grey/Hanes building (2nd floor) and the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) facility, at the DeanA1 building.
