On July 1, 2013, the Electron Microscopy Center (EMC) officially opened for business. We gave away coffee and donuts all morning while answering questions about the new core facility and giving tours of the equipment. On the following day, Barry Stein and Gavin Murphy gave a joint presentation entitled "The EMC and You: How the New Electron Microscopy Center Can Benefit YOUR Research" to the biological community in Myers Hall 130. Roger Innes introduced all the staff of the EMC, and then Barry and Gavin split the next 50 minutes talking about how the new core facility could help the biology community in a variety of ways. Both Barry and Gavin emphasized correlated light and electron microscopy, but also discussed the other types of research that can be done using the new core facility.
