Alice Liang, PhD, director of Microscopy core, was awarded the Diatome U.S. 1st place prize for her poster during the Microscopy Society of America (MSA) Annual Meeting in August 2013, Indianapolis, IN. For 20 years, Diatome has had the honor of recognizing scientists in the field of microscopy by sponsoring the Annual Diatome Award, which applauds all of the new and exciting work being performed in the community. Every year, the posters on display are judged by the MSA council members and chosen based on the best use of ultramicrotome as part of their work. The first place prize includes a trip to Switzerland to visit the Diatome factory.
