For the last 50 years, the Franceschi Microscopy & Imaging Center (FMIC) has served thousands of students, researchers, and members of the WSU community. Since 1966, the FMIC has trained students in the use of state-of-the-art imaging equipment.
The FMIC provides the WSU community, as well as outside industry users, access to electron microscopes, confocal microscopes, a fluorescence microscope, and various light microscopes. These tools can be used to observe and analyze an array of biological and non-biological specimens, and prepare WSU students well for competitive jobs. Our students have gone on to positions in such companies as Intel and Boeing, and in national laboratories like the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
The FMIC is the oldest electron microscopy program in the country and, with your support, it will continue to be a valuable resource for WSU students for the next 50 years and beyond. Please support the FMIC with a gift on Giving Tuesday.
