KAUST and Leica Microsystems inaugurated a new Center of Excellence (CoE) for Optical Microscopy on the University's campus on March 12. With the new center, KAUST and Leica Microsystems embark on a long-term partnership in cutting-edge life science research with the objective of encouraging new discoveries.

"With the opening of the Center of Excellence on the KAUST campus, there is now a visible expression of our partnership," said Markus Lusser, president of Leica Microsystems. "We will work with KAUST and their world-class faculty members and students to drive the use and implementation of sample preparation and imaging systems. These systems are already revolutionizing approaches to life science and materials research, and we expect KAUST to play a significant role in extending developments in these areas."

A new SP8 confocal platform from Leica with Super Resolution (STED) and light sheet capabilities was unveiled—the first of its kind to be installed in the Kingdom and in the Middle East.

"Today, we—KAUST and Leica Microsystems—have pledged to combine our strengths. The launch of this CoE will impact not just the field of optical microscopy as a whole but on the scientific ambitions of KAUST and the Kingdom," explained Justin Mynar, KAUST associate vice president for research and executive director of the KAUST Core Labs. "Our partnership will impact on all of our users for the betterment of the Kingdom and the scientific achievements that will guide its ambitious development objectives."
