UMB Current EM Techniques Workshop- Multi-Modality Imaging

UMB Current Techniques EM Workshop logo

The aim of the Current EM Techniques Workshop is to introduce new electron microscopy techniques and instrumentations via live demonstration and open discussions.  The theme of the workshop is changed every year.

 2019 Theme: 

Multi-Modality Imaging 

Combination of imaging modalities provides better solution to overcome the limitations of each independent techniques and generate more morphofunctional information.  Multimodality imaging can be achieved by acquiring images synchronously or asynchronously.  This workshop will present current research, techniques and instrumentation in multi-modality imaging.    

Dates: May 30 - 31, 2019
