April 12 @ 8:00 am - April 13 @ 4:30 pm

We are excited to host the fourth annual Facilities Days Open House on Thursday, April 12 and Friday, April 13 at Union South. This year the meeting will feature tutorials for common microscopy and microanalysis techniques available in the UW-Madison shared facilities. These tutorials and introductions will be an excellent learning opportunity for everyone, from faculty and graduate students to industrial users and will illustrate how best to apply these techniques to your problems!

Thanks to the support of our generous vendors, this event is FREE!
