TaCore Tuesday Recap
On Tuesday, Oct. 15, IALS hosted the first annual UMass Core Facilities Showcase.
The event began with a poster session where each facility provided their capabilities, testimonials, and the scientific value that they have added to their corresponding industry. Core directors as well as some Core summer interns were present to discuss their experience at IALS.
The poster session, which was accompanied by a taco bar, continued into the afternoon. During this time, guests had the opportunity to spark informal conversation about the facilities, create connections, and learn the ways in which IALS could cater to their needs.
As the event progressed, attendees scheduled twenty minute, one-on-one meetings with Core directors. They discussed ways in which their own research could be enhanced with the help of the Core Facilities.
The showcase concluded with a cocktail reception and continued poster session. Here, guests continued networking and determined which of the 31 IALS Core Facilities would best cater to their needs moving forward.
We thank everyone for participating, and look forward to you joining us for future events.
