PPE

Weitz’s lab donated a large proportion of its PPE stock to support our colleagues in the hospitals

In the face of COVID-19, Weitz’s lab donated a large proportion of its PPE stock before the lab’s shutdown. The facility service of Harvard SEAS gathered all these up and delivered to our colleagues in the hospitals, as they were facing a shortage of medical supplies, including PPE (Personal protective equipment).

Stay safe and stay healthy, everyone!

ACE-M-2 (Advanced Colloids Experiment-Microscopy-2): Sometimes it’s hard to tell a gas from a liquid. Advanced Colloids Experiment-Microscopy-2 (ACE-M-2) observes the microscopic behavior of liquids and gases separating from each other. The investigation examines the behavior of model (colloid rich) liquids and model (colloid poor) gases near the critical point, or the point at which there is no distinct boundary between the two phases. ACE-M-2 uses a new microscope to record micro-scale events on short time scales, while previous experiments observed...
