Drs. John G. White and William Bradshaw Amos will receive the ABRF Award for the development of the Laser-Scanning Confocal Microscope

They developed and patented the first high-resolution, laser scanning confocal microscope for biological application in 1987. Their design and implementation was the first widely accessible system for the biomedical research community. It would become the foundation for many subsequent commercial instruments, including modern state-of-the-art multi-photon and super-resolution microscopy systems.

Special Workshop in cooperation with NIH:  Enhancing Efficiency of Research Core Facilities

The NIH invests substantial resources in core research facilities – centralized shared research resources that provide access to instruments, technologies, and expert consultation, and other services to scientific and clinical investigators. The NIH wants to hear from institutional leaders and core facility administrators and directors about how to improve efficiency including centralizing management, sharing, and co-locating cores.
