In Fall 2022, a group of nearly three dozen students from the Merritt Microscopy Program (accompanied by a few administrators, classified professional staff, and faculty members) took a field trip to the new Zeiss Innovation Center in Dublin, CA. We toured the medical imaging, advanced microscopy, and consumer optics demo areas, and took meetings with company stakeholders. Students were able to ask about careers, while administrators and faculty met with the President of North American Microscopy and his team to discuss/develop internships and employment pipelines for current and former students in the Bioscience programs.
