This event will introduce the Cornell NanoScale Facility (CNF) and showcase microscale and nanoscale technologies that are available to the medical and research communities of the New York-Metro area. The CNF staff who are available for consultation will also be introduced. The purpose of the office is to lower any barriers to the adoption of nanotechnology tools and techniques, and to promote intercampus collaborations with Cornell in Ithaca. Consultation and Ithaca facilities are open to any faculty, post-docs and students.
