About Interdisciplinary Instrumentation Workshops

We invite UM Teaching and Research Faculty from across campus to participate in lab tours, followed by discussion related to interdisciplinary research opportunities in instrumentation. The purpose is to spark new ideas about collaboration with colleagues in the U-M community.


Interdisciplinary Instrumentation Lab Mixer #3
Friday January 20, 2017

Please note multiple locations:
3:30 Meet in 3245 Chemistry
Lab tours (See schedule below)
Refreshments and beverages in 3246 Randall

We invite UM Teaching and Research Faculty from across campus to attend the third Lab Mixer to highlight interdisciplinary research opportunities in instrumentation. This time we will visit two labs in Chemistry/Biophysics, one lab in Randall/Physics, then to 3246 Randall Lab (third floor fishbowl) for discussion to learn more about each other and possibly spark new ideas and collaborations (food and beverages will be served). If you ever wanted to know what is going on in the diverse UM labs behind closed doors, now is a chance to start learning.  

We hope to see you there!
