Advances in AFM Mechanobiology, Nanomechanical, and Nanoelectrical Measurement Technology

Nov. 12, 2019 | California Nanosystems Institute at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA


The California Nanosystems Institute at UCLA and Bruker are pleased to co-host an atomic force microscopy workshop in Los Angeles on November 12, 2019. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about new advances in AFM mechanobiology, nanomechanical, and nanoelectrical measurement technology.

We will also perform demonstrations with Bruker's Dimension FastScan AFM and Dimension Icon AFM, and JPK NanoWizard BioAFM.

If you have any questions about this workshop, please contact Steve Ziegler by email at or by phone at 512.468.8998.
