Image Analysis and Graphics Core
About the Core
The Image Analysis and Graphics Core is available 24/7 to our vision research faculty and staff. Eligible users are assigned an individual PIN number for room access.
DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC: Only one person should work in the Imaging Core room at a time. If you need to work in there it would be a good idea to check the core grant calendar to see if anyone is scheduled to work in there at the same time. Please reserve a time on the calendar if you need to work in the Imaging Core for an extended period – ideally trying to limit your reserved time to less than 4 hours at a time. Contact Suling if you need access to the calendar.
An Image Analysis, Graphic Design and Illustration Resource
Suling Wang, the imaging technician, is a professional graphic designer and illustrator. Suling is available 3 days a weeks to support in image analysis tasks, instruct in use of hardware or software, provide graphic design assistance or create original illustrations. Please email Suling to discuss your needs. During the COVID pandemic, Suling is working remotely but can be available by phone or zoom when help is needed with software or hardware in the Imaging Core.
