We are excited to announce that our EM core is going to be relocated entirely in CGRC. The move should not only offer our users additional convenience with a singular location and increased proximity to our peer cores, but the renovation will provide our users with a revamped lab space that will expand the capabilities and offerings of our EM team.
We are very excited about the next steps, but there is still a lot of work left to do. EM is currently doing their best to facilitate this move while still serving UF Faculty. One unfortunate consequence of the renovation operations is the EM Lab space in the CGRC will become inaccessible after the Thanksgiving break, and will likely not reopen until late February. This means our Scanning Electron Microscopy abilities will be severely limited during this time. Staff will continue to work on projects, as they are able. It’s important to note that our SEM project calendar is fully booked during our upcoming limited availability but please reach out if you have a project that you would like to submit for when we ramp up SEM lab activities, or if you have any questions. The Transmission Electron Microscopy location in the Microbiology and Cell Sciences building will remain operation until the renovations are complete, at which time the entire operation will be moved to the CGRC.
