The Center for Advanced Microscopy and Imaging (CAMI) is an all-university research, teaching, and service facility located in Upham Hall on Miami University's main campus, in Oxford, Ohio. CAMI serves the microscopy needs of both the biological and materials communities. CAMI is available for use without charge to the Miami University community.

CAMI occupies 28 rooms with approximately 5400 ft2 of laboratory and lecture space. This space was newly renovated in 2010, and designed specifically to best meet the environmental needs for advanced microscopy. This renovation was also designed to provide the best integrated teaching and research space, and contains an interactive multi-media teaching/lecture lab for remote operation of the microscopes.

All of the laboratory rooms are climate controlled and the transmission electron microscope (TEM) lab spaces have building-independent humidity controls.
