The Electron Microscopy Core Facility (EMC) is a campus-wide resource offered by the Office of Research. The EMC was established in 1995 by combining the electron microscopy resources of the College of Veterinary Medicine, the School of Medicine and the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resoucres. In 2000, the EMC was expanded by the incorporation of the Department of Geological Sciences Microbeam Analysis Facility. The EMC is hosted by the Department of the Veterinary Pathobiology.
