Education and Training for biological microscopy and image analysis.

The Core Facilities train over one hundred new users a year on one or more instruments and are co-hosting a bioimaging camp for middle school girls with GAMES.Core users are trained to use microscopy, analytical and fabrication equipment housed in the facility. This allows access to the equipment 24 hours a day and provides users with a hands-on knowledge of the tools used in their research. Microscopy training is provided by Mayandi Sivaguru, Histology training is provided by Kingsley Boateng and GCMS training is provided by Austin Cyphersmith. Training on the ABI7900 is provided by Mark Band in the Biotechnology Center.

Electron Paramagnetic Resonance

This facility provides the the University of Illinois as well as other members of scientific community with EPR (also called ESR, electron spin resonance, or EMR, electron magnetic resonance), ENDOR, and ESEEM facilities and expertise. Additionally, the facility is involved in collaborative research and works with scientists worldwide who are interested in EPR techniques. We encourage scientists of all disciplines to visit our center and undertake collaborative or other work. Where feasible, samples can be sent in for spectral examination by laboratory personnel.

Embodied Learning Augmented through Simulation Theaters for Interacting with Cross-Cutting Concepts in Science

Embodied Learning Augmented through Simulation Theaters for Interacting with Cross-Cutting Concepts in Science) is an NSF Cyberlearning research project conducted by an interdisciplinary team of learning scientists and computer scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The goal of this project is explore ways that body movement can be used to enhance learning of "big ideas" in science. We are developing new techniques for tracking and recognizing the hand and body movements of K12 learners so that they can interact in expressive ways with simulations from a range of topic areas in geology, chemistry, biology, etc.


Located in Champaign, IL, EpiWorks is a semiconductor technology company that spun out of the late Professor Greg Stillman's research lab at MNTL. Stillman founded the company in 1997 with two of his graduate students, David Ahmari (PhD EE 1998) and Quesnell Hartmann (PhD EE 1998), who had developed novel material deposition techniques and designs for high-performance III-V epitaxial devices.. EpiWorks, which is led by Ahmari and Hartmann, is developing the next generation of infrastructure for communications, data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) backbone. The company designs and manufactures III-V semiconductor wafers for RF applications such as smartphones and tablets and photonics applications such as data centers and mobile photonics. With expertise in both device design and crystal growth, EpiWorks’ engineers tailor a wafer's atomically thin layers for each customer's specific needs, thus optimizing device performance.

FormLabs Form 2 - 3D Printer

The Form 2 Desktop 3D printer is able to deliver large prints with incredible resolution. The method used by the majority of 3D printers, fused deposition modeling (FDM), first melts the plastic, then uses a nozzle extruder to print each layer with the molten plastic. The stereolithography (SLA) technology used by the Form 2 directs a 250mW precision laser across a tray of liquid resin causing a thin layer to solidify. This chemical reaction allows for the creation of water-tight prints and is why SLA is the gold standard for accuracy and resolution in 3D printing.
