Description

More than $27 million from the National Science Foundation will fund two new facilities here in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry! Lead PIs include Rafael Bruschweiler and Robert Baker.

  • The National Gateway Ultrahigh Field NMR Center ($17.577 million)
  • The National Extreme Ultrafast Science Facility (NEXUS) ($9.5 million)

The facilities, which will be open to scientists everywhere, are a product of NSF’s program addressing the need for mid-scale research infrastructure that gives more scientists access to state-of-the-art technology — one of NSF’s 10 Big Ideas.

Co-PIs include Rafael Brüschweiler, Chris Jaroniec, Mark Foster, Philip Grandinetti, and Blanton Tolbert (National Gateway Ultrahigh Field NMR Center); and Robert Baker, Lou DiMauro, Jay Gupta, Roland Kawakami and Claudia Turro (NEXUS).
