Join us to learn about Mid-Infrared Medical Systems (MIMeS), the proposed NSF I/UCRC center which is dedicated to the development of engineering systems employing mid-infrared photonic technologies for medical applications.
- Initial long-term partnerships and research collaboration opportunities between industry, clinicians, and university partners of MIMeS will be consolidated.
- The primary research targets for the partnership will be validated and refined, and a plan to integrate industrial commercialization goals with cutting-edge engineering education will be developed.
- Growth of the industrial partnerships beyond those already initially committed will be exercise.
Date: July 21-22, 2014
Time: 8:00am July 21 to 12noon July 22
Location: Convocation Room, Friend Center, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544 (map)

Please review Princeton University’s information for visitors on how to get to Princeton’s campus via air, train and car.
Travelers flying in/out of Newark Airport, please take note: Effective May 1, NJTransit rail service to Newark Airport will be suspended through mid-July due to scheduled Port Authority repairs to AirTrain. Customers are strongly advised to use Port Authority’s shuttle bus service at Newark Penn Station for travel to the airport. We recommend that you plan some extra time in your travel to accommodate for this outage.
Parking is available at Lot 21 in the spaces closest to Fitz-Randolph Road or at metered parking spaces along Prospect Avenue, Olden Street, and Williams Street (quarters required). For more information, see Princeton’s visitor parking page.
The cut-off date for the block of rooms has passed. Please call the Nassau Inn Reservations department directly at 1-800-862-7728 and use the Booking ID “19459“, as the Princeton University rate of $140/night may be still offered, dependent on room availability. Please call Mona Hall at 609-258-2636 if you have any difficulties booking a room.
Please note that all guests will be asked to provide a credit card and picture id upon check-in.
There will be a courtesy shuttle to transport guests between the Nassau Inn and Princeton University on both Monday (morning and evening) and Tuesday (morning only).
