Our Recent Publications

Here are some recent EM-containing publications from people who use the EMC.* Click on the title of an article to visit the website of the publisher where you should be able to obtain a PDF copy of the journal article. If you are unable to obtain a copy that way, please contact the highlighted author(s) for further information. Finally, publications that do not have an IUB-associated name highlighted contain electron microscopy work done by off-campus users of EMC equipment.
