    Did You Know?
    UofL’s Micro/NanoTechnology Center’s service center and Huson Nanotechnology Core Facility have been reorganized to connect MNTC’s large external user base to HNCF services. The goal of joining these two centers is to increase revenue in support of maintaining and further expanding HNCF capabilities. In recognition of the importance of HNCF to advancing UofL’s research mission, the HNCF service center will join and be managed as part of the MNTC service center.
