Trinity chemistry professor Nancy Mills, with colleagues Laura Hunsicker-Wang, Jessica Hollenbeck and Adam Urbach, have been awarded $498,500 by the National Science Foundation for the purchase of a 500 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometer. This device will enhance the research programs of Trinity faculty as well as the experience of students in the summer research program. The device will also be used by Trinity biology professor Frank Healy, as well as Rafael Adrian and David Coleman, biochemistry professors at the University of the Incarnate Word.
Chemistry department chair Steven Bachrach points out that “this is a real coup for the university as we will now have an instrument comparable or better than any other PUI and on par with many R1 schools..”
This grant was made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
