Your publications and presentations are essential to our continuous efforts to provide users with the advanced instrumentation, staff, training, and assistance required for LSU researchers to advance their research projects and programs. The SIF needs to report on the number and type of publications produced by users of the facility. 

Please send us an update on your recent publications, invited talks, abstracts, and presentations at both national and sectional society meetings.

Published data should include an acknowledgment to the SIF such as: “Confocal microscopy was performed at the Shared Instrumentation Facility (SIF) at Louisiana State University”
