This event marks the launch of the Royce 3D Bioelectronics Suite; a suite of equipment featuring a 2photon laser scanning microscope, along with equipment for cell growth and freeze drying.

This event will feature short talks covering an overview of the capabilities of the 3D Bioelectronics Facility, current projects, and research directions. This will be followed by tours of the labs and the opportunity to hold informal discussion with PIs/Facility manager about further work.

10:00-10:30am: Introductory talk presenting the facility capabilities, research directions and Royce Access Funding.
10:30-12:00: Tours and informal discussions. Refreshments.
12 noon: 3D Bioelectronics Facility Opening.

This equipment supports the Biomaterials Theme of the Royce Institute.
