Future Trends in Microscopy Workshop

Wednesday, January 15, 2014
University of MN, Twin Cities East Bank Campus

This IPrime Mid-Year Workshop will introduce participants to the latest and near-future trends in high resolution (both spatial and temporal) microscopy. Some methods and instruments described are newly or soon to be available in our core facilities (CharFac and UIC). Some are cutting edge developments, not available in core facilities at this point, but harbingers of what is to come.

Wednesday, January 15, 2014
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM, check-in begins 8:00 AM
Jackson Hall, room 2-137 (2nd floor, bldg west side)

This IPrime Mid-Year Workshop is presented by the Nanostructural Materials and Processes (NMP) program and Characterization Facility (CharFac). Coordinators: NMP Program Leader Alon McCormick and CharFac Director Greg Haugstad. Registration is required.

Description
The goal of this workshop is to introduce participants to the latest and near-future trends in high resolution (both spatial and temporal) microscopy. Some methods and instruments described are newly or soon available in our core facilities (Characterization Facility and University Imaging Centers). Some are cutting edge developments, not available in core facilities at this point, but harbingers of what is to come.

To Attend 
Register here by Friday, January 10. This workshop is free and open to IPrime member companies, invited guests, and University of Minnesota faculty, students, and staff. Prospective IPrime members interested in attending an IPrime event as a guest should contact Bob Lewis, ph: 612-625-1269.
