On the morning of Monday, December 10, CAMBR will be sponsoring a complementary "Materials & Biomaterials Facilities" information session. Brian Branfireun (Director, Biotron), François Lagugné-Labarthet (Director, Nanofab) and David Shoesmith (Director, Surface Science Western) will each be giving an interactive information seminar, outlining the capabilities of their facility here at Western. This is an ideal opportunity for faculty, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to learn (more?) about what services and instrumentation these and other centres can provide to advance their research in (bio)materials. 

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The session has been moved to Chem Bldg 9 (Ground Floor).
