GOLDEN GATE POLYMER FORUM- MICROSCOPY SHORT COURSE @ Michaels at Shoreline
May 7 @ 10:00 am – May 8 @ 4:30 pm

GOLDEN GATE POLYMER FORUM- SHORT COURSE- MAY 7 & 8, 2019- Early registration ends Monday, April 8th, 2019

 

The Golden Gate Polymer Forum (GGPF) of the San Francisco Bay Area announces a two-day short course:  an overview/survey on Microscopy of Polymers, with application examples in medical devices and pharmaceuticals, presented by Dr. Steven Goodman, an expert in the field.  The short course will  be May 7 and 8, 2019, in Mountain View, CA.   Attendees will gain an understanding of the basic principles of a diverse range of microscopy techniques and materials with case studies where a variety of microscopy instruments and characterization techniques were utilized to solve real problems in R&D, quality assessment and control, and patent litigation.  Materials that will be addressed include polyurethanes, block copolymers, hydrogels, polyethylenes, fluoropolymers, and polymer-like materials including pyrolytic carbon and biologicals. This course will benefit engineers and scientists, especially those working with biomedical devices and pharmaceuticals, who wish to understand the broad range of imaging instruments that can be applied to polymer characterization.  Full course details and registration information can be found on the web page, www.GGPF.org.  Please note that discounted advance registration ends April 8, and final registration ends April 22.
