More than 75 people gathered at the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience on Tuesday for a grand opening celebration of three state-of-the-art research facilities – the Core Center of Excellence in Nano Imaging, the John O’Brien Nanofabrication Laboratory and the Dynamic Imaging Science Center.

After a presentation about facilities, attendees were given tours of such highlights as the Transmission Electron Microscope inside the Core Center of Excellence in Nano Imaging.

Professor Andrea Armani of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering, director of the John O’Brien Nanofabrication Laboratory, said the event was the celebration of an accomplishment that had been in the works for more than a decade.

The USC Michelson Center brings together a diverse network of scientists and engineers from the USC Viterbi, the Keck School of Medicine of USC and the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. It provides a multidisciplinary environment to solve problems such as cancer, neurological disease and cardiovascular disease.
