Presentations will focus on biological problems for which a combination of
microscopies [i.e. integrated microscopy] has been used.  The speakers will
demonstrate by example the power, potential and limitations of various
microscopical techniques.  The techniques which will be discussed include:
DIC, Confocal, 2-Photon Excitation Imaging, SEM, TEM, Cryo-specimen
Preparation, and AFM.

********************************************************************************

Following the symposium, the IMR will be conducting a 2-day workshop (Oct 2
and 3).  We will be presenting lectures and provide "hands-on" experience
for the following techniques:
                *       2-photon excitation imaging
                *       4D DIC imaging
                *       Cryo-SEM
                *       High pressure freezing
                *       Reversible embeddment for SEM and TEM

Workshop attendence will be limited to 25 participants.  A letter of
application is required.  Once accepted a fee of $150.00 will be due.
