A group of eight faculty received a DoD HBCU/MI instrumentation grant for $495,850 to acquire three new instruments for shared research use:
· A Bruker Vertex 70 research grade FTIR with far-IR and ATR capabilities.
· A Horiba Fluorolog-3 research grade spectrofluorometer with CCD detector and microwell plate reader.
· A Thermo Electron high resolution liquid chromatograph/mass spectrometer (in partnership with the NSF-CREST center, there are two instruments with complementary capabilities).
All three instruments are now installed in the basement of SE2.
