Iowa Microscopy Society invites submissions for Iowa Art in Science competition

The Hubble Space Telescope is a powerful scientific data collecting tool, but perhaps the majority of us are first captured by the exquisite images of the Butterfly Nebula and the Tadpole Galaxy. At the UI Central Microscopy Research Facilities, their powerful microscopes are like the Hubble in reverse: dynamic scientific tools capable of drawing out beauty on an extremely small scale.

Deadline extended to November 6 for CMRF seed grants

The University of Iowa Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development has launched a pilot seed grant program to encourage researchers to use the Central Microscopy Research Facility (CMRF) to help secure further external funding. Established in 1973 and located in the Eckstein Medical Research Facility, the CMRF provides instrumentation and technical assistance to research...
