2010 MSA Presidential Student Award

Posted on: March 30, 2010

Andrew Thron received one of the 2010 MSA Presidential Student Awards. As a recipient of this award, he will receive complimentary registration for
Microscopy & Microanalysis 2010 in Portland, Oregon.

Microscopy and Microanalysis 2010 promises to be the epitome of scientific diversity, spanning disciplines from the life sciences to the physical sciences, all unified by the tools of our trade. The program committee has developed a strong program highlighting the latest microscopic and microanalytical advances in fields such as nanotechnology, biological sciences, materials science, clinical diagnoses, and metallurgy. Many interdisciplinary symposia have been organized, reflecting the current environment of collaboration between scientists in different disciplines. Again this year, we will kick off the meeting with a plenary session on Monday morning featuring Dr. Mark Welland and highlighting the winners of our major societal awards. The exhibits will demonstrate state-of-the-art equipment, and the vendor tutorials will continue to be a significant part of the meeting. The meeting will also feature "Back to the Basics" tutorials and workshops to be held during the meeting in addition to the traditional Sunday Short Courses.

Attending Microscopy & Microanalysis 2010 will allow you to stay abreast of new technologies, learn new techniques, and see the latest instrumentation. We hope that you will be able to join us in Portland for what is shaping up to be a very exciting and educational meeting.
