Training & New Accounts

Welcome to the University of Iowa Central Microscopy Research Facilities! We are happy that you have decided to utilize us for your microscopy research.

We like to get to know our investigators a little before they start their work on the instrumentation to ensure the best methodology is used for the project. Please help us out by completing the Project Information Form below, printing it, and returning it to 85 EMRB.


Training is most commonly done on a one-on-one basis with a CMRF staff member. If you would like to make an appointment with staff for training, please give us a call at (319) 335-8142, or email Randy Nessler.

We look forward to working with you! 

To submit the electronic copy of the Project Information Form, download and fill out the PDF file. Then, attach it to an e-mail, and send it to Randy Nessler. If you are going to submit your Project Information Form electronically, your Principal Investigator must have the full version of Adobe Acrobat in order to provide a faculty signature.

Validate your MFK using the Accounting Services MFK Validation Tool.
