This paper highlights the importance of advanced microscopy and microanalysis in the pursuit of quality research in the biological and life sciences.With the growing complexity of modern microscopes, there is substantial risk of incorrect use or misinterpretation of data by the inexperienced researcher. This paper emphasizes the need for collaboration between biological microscopists and molecular biologists, within the context of centralized facilities and supported by first-class training, to fully realize the power of these unique instruments in modern biology and to create the next generation of molecular microscopists.
