RTP 10 year celebration seminar: Imaging and Particle Size Analysis

Thursday 9th May 2024, 9.30am-11.30am - In-person event

Location: Lecture Theatre 5, Science Concourse

The Research Technology Platform (RTP) Department is hosting a seminar series to celebrate 10 years of the RTP programme.

This seminar brings together technical specialists from multiple RTPs to talk about their facilities and how they can help with your research, with a focus on imaging and particle size analysis. The RTPs offer a wide range of cutting-edge techniques and instrumentation for imaging and particle size analysis that can be applied across a breadth of disciplines, including materials development, engineering and drug discovery.

The seminar is open to all members of the University who are interested in finding out more about how the RTPs can support their research in this area. You will also have an opportunity to hear from users who have benefited from RTP equipment, expertise and services.
