Bridging life sciences and materials science research. Tour the newest microscopy and nanofabrication facility in the D.C. region. The tour will showcase state-of-the-art microscopy equipment and techniques that are producing advances in life sciences, drug delivery and biomedical sciences, with a focus on neuroscience and imaging neurons. Guests will see neurons grown in silicon wafers, learn about a new process that combines the strengths of light and electron microscopy and see how investigators generate high resolution three-dimensional images from small samples. Many demos will be conducted remotely via large screens. Wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes (longer periods of standing involved).
