The Core Facilities Pilot Program (CFPP) is designed to support three key types of activity within the RII-managed core facilities:
  • The development of new methods or techniques that would extend the standard operating procedures and capabilities of RII-managed core facilities and potentially impact multiple UA researchers;
  • The acquisition of preliminary data needed for extramural proposals;
  • The technical training of students conducting research under existing extramural funding.

Funding provided under the CFPP may only be spent within RII-ma

Enrollment for Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy 2020 at the MDI Biological Laboratory in Maine is now open. This is an intensive lab/lecture course, focusing on fluorescence microscopy in all its forms, including widefield, Confocal, Multiphoton, Decon, Super resolution TIRF, FRET, 2D and 3D image processing (including time-based analysis), etc., with an emphasis on live cell methods. We also encourage students to provide their own specimens such that the hands-on components of the course are as enriching as possible.
