NIC @ HMS Workshops

A primary goal of the NIC@HMS is to provide training in basic and advanced light microscopy techniques.  The NIC@HMS offers a series of workshops and lectures that are open to members of all non-profit and/or academic institutions.

Our workshops are encouraged but not required for using the microscopes in the NIC@HMS. If you want to use the NIC@HMS microscopes for your research, please fill out the online request for training.
