As many of you know, we received a National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation grant to support SUNY-ESF and partner institutions, Upstate MedicalUniversity and Syracuse University with new electron microscopes.  The JEOL JSM IT100LA In Touch Scanning Electron Microscope was installed in January.  The installation of the JEOL JEM2100FE transmission electron microscope is in progress.

Our two new electron microscopes were made possible through a grant from the National Science Foundation.  The grant was award to a team of investigators from SUNY-ESF and partner institutions, Syracuse University and Upstate Medical University; Susan Anagnost, Ph.D., N.C. Brown Center Director and Principal Investigator on the grant, Robert P. Smith, M.S., and Ivan Gitsov, Ph.D., of ESF; Stephan Wilkens, Ph.D., of SUNY Upstate Medical University; and Mathew M. Maye, Ph.D., of Syracuse University.  Funding for the microscope is also supported by Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR) and the three universities.
