Dear Colleagues,

We would like to bring your attention to the following opportunity:

*Penn State Summer Microscopy School*

Are you a microscopist in the life sciences interested in learning about
EFTEM, STEM and spectrum imaging (EDS & EELS) techniques? Or are you a
materials science microscopist interested in learning about cryo-EM, low
dose imaging, and new sample preparation/handling techniques? If so, join
Thermo Fisher Scientific (formerly FEI) and Penn State University for a
joint cryo-EM course starting August 13, with one-week and two-week
options. This course will emphasize TEM methods that can be applied across
both life and materials sciences. For example:

   - Employing spectroscopy, used in materials science, to provide key
   elemental information within biological samples.

   - Using low-dose and cryo instrumentation designed for life sciences for
   polymers and weakly-bonded materials.

Week 1 will consist of topical lectures and live demonstrations. Week 2
(optional) will provide hands on training using Penn State’s microscopy
facility. You can find more information and apply at the link below. Space
is limited, so register now.


Any questions should be directed to Jennifer Grey and Ke Wang (contact info
provided in the link above).

Best regards,
The Pennsylvania State University
