Course Number: 

An introduction to microscopy for graduate students emphasizing light microscopy techniques and principals.

The NRI-MCDB Microscopy Facility participates in campus-wide events as well as graduate student tours and orientations.

Once a month, the facility director (Ben Lopez) and any interested UCSB researchers meet and discuss whatever microscopy topics are on our minds. Our meetings are simultaneously in-person and over zoom, so you are welcome to attend either way!

Some examples of topics are: best imaging practices for publication, sample labeling protocols, various image analysis methods, and project presentations from specific researchers.

Presentation files and recording of our meetings are posted here: File Link.
