Description of the workshop:

This workshop will feature several presentations on the topic of how to build an imaging core facility from the ground up. The speakers have extensive experience in how to build an imaging core facility (light and electron microscopy) from scratch. After the presentations, participants are invited to exchange their own experiences and discuss the building blocks of imaging core facilities and most common issues arising during the process. The duration of the workshop is 2.5-3 hours.
