The Multiscale Microscopy Core is a state-of-the-art electron microscopy core that was established in 2013 through the collaborative efforts of the OHSU Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine and Hillsboro-based FEI.  It provides imaging services, technical support and training to academic and corporate users.  The MMC offers multiple levels of service that correspond with the analysis and/or training each user desires. Training on the instruments can be provided for individuals who anticipate having long-term EM projects. Microscope access is granted by three different mechanisms and priority is given in the following order: internal academic users (OHSU faculty and affiliates), external academic users (a proposal is submitted for review and approval) and external confidential/corporate users (no proposal review).

The Pacific Northwest Microscopy Society and the Multiscale Microscopy Core are inviting the research community to a one-day workshop, with major focus on the cryo-preparation of biological samples by High Pressure Freezing.  Dr. Shigeki Watanabe (Johns Hopkins University) will lead the workshop, beginning with a morning lecture and discussion followed by an afternoon hands-on demonstration of the Wohlwend HPF02 high pressure freezer.
