OMUG Summary

Comprehensive Course on Fluorescence Microscopy

Optical Microscopy Users Group (O-MUG)

The Optical Microscopy Users Group meets once a month to discuss topics ranging from new microscopy systems to acquisition to analysis techniques. Meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of each month from 10-11am at TMDT on the 4th floor, Room 4-204. Each meeting comprises a 30-45min presentation on a selected topic followed by discussion. All levels of microscope users are welcome. Coffee will be provided, so all you need to do is bring your O-wn MUG!

Check this webpage regularly for information on past and upcoming meetings.

***Our next O-MUG is TBA. ***
