Author: Brandi Klingerman

On Tuesday, May 8th, 2018 the Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF) will host its annual Midwest Imaging and Microanalysis Workshop at the McKenna Conference Center. The event will feature presentations from faculty across the region, including Purdue University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Michigan.

In discussing the upcoming event, NDIIF Director and Emil T. Hofman Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Bradley Smith said, “Each year, we bring together researchers from a variety of imaging disciplines across the Midwest, as well as the United States and abroad, to present their work and to learn about the new equipment available for use at our facility. I encourage all interested faculty, students, and industry colleagues to take advantage of this dynamic learning and networking opportunity.”

The workshop will feature lectures by leading experts from electron microscopy companies, as well as Midwestern and international research institutions, with topics covering new trends in in-situ and high-resolution microscopy for nanotechnology, material science, and biology. Additionally, there will be an introduction to new equipment available at the NDIIF and a poster session competition that students are encouraged to participate in. 

The workshop will also highlight NDIIF’s Best Imaging Publication of 2017 awardees, as follows:


  • Yuliya Klymenko, postdoctoral scholar in chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame
  • Jeremiah Zartman, assistant professor in chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Notre Dame

Along with the NDIIF, the workshop is supported by the College of Engineering, the College of Science, the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, the Department of Electrical Engineering, Notre Dame Research, NDnano, ND Energy, as well as industry partners Gatan Inc., Hitachi Ltd., Oxford Instruments, and ThermoFisher Scientific.
