After a presentation on the facilities, attendees were able to tour highlights such 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 a celebration of an achievement 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 USC Viterbi, USC Keck School of Medicine, and USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. It offers a multidisciplinary environment to solve problems such as cancer, neurological diseases and cardiovascular diseases.
