We have consolidated imaging systems on HLSIC 3 that are available to all as of January 10, 2012. Dr. David Albertini will oversee training and access to this equipment and will conduct a series of workshops beginning in February (stay tuned for dates and topics to be covered). A brief description of the equipment and location are provided below and all queries should be directed to Dr. Albertini (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please take advantage of the imaging resources made available to you through the support and participation of the IRHRM.
