The University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB) Electron Microscopy Core Imaging Facility (EMCIF) will be hosting its fifth Annual Current EM Techniques Workshop on May 30th and 31st 2019. This year’s theme is “Multi-modality Imaging”. We have lined up speakers from Johns Hopkins University, George Washington University, New York University and UMB, as well as application specialists from Thermo Fisher, Tescan, Angstrom Science and Nikon who will discuss research and imaging methods for the same specimen using multiple imaging platforms. Unique aspects of this workshop are the live instrument demonstrations and tryouts. This year, the instruments available for demonstration and tryout include an ASP1000 auto specimen processor by Microscopy Innovations, an ARTOS -3D Array Tomography Solutions from Leica Microsystems, a Hitachi TP4000 Table top SEM provided by Angstrom Scientific, an Access ultrathin Atomic Force Microscope by Angstrom Science, a Portable Plasma Cleaner/Asher from Ibss Group Inc, an EMS 150V Plus ultra-fine grain, high resolution coater by Electron Microscopy Sciences, and Glow discharge, Hi Vac coater by Ted Pella.
Thanks to generous support from our sponsors, we are again offering free participation in the workshop to students. Instrument demonstrations are also open. For more information, please visit the workshop website:
Finally, the workshop attendees will have an opportunity to join the local Chesapeake Microscopy & Microanalysis Society (CMMS) dinner also held at UMB on the evening of May 30th. Speakers for the CMMS dinner include Dr. Rhonda Stroud from the Naval Research Laboratory, also President of MAS, and Dr. Jiwen Zheng from FDA.
