Covid-19 Update

The Advanced Light Microscopy Core is coming back online as a part of the trial run for university return to research level 2. Currently, we are running each instrument through quality control tests to identify issues caused by the prolonged shutdown. We greatly appreciate your patience with this first phase of our restart.

Please read the attached document for details about how we are ramping up our services, and for important news about the restart and modified operations going forward. Our policies are subject to change, concurrent with OHSU policies.
