News, updates, opportunities, & discussions
The Babechuk Research Group is thrilled to finally meet pace with official announcements and provide an update on the future of analytical infrastructure and resources.
Funding has been secured from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF) program with a generous match from the Newfoundland & Labrador Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry, and Innovation (TCII) InnovateNL program. This funding will lead to the development of a new, low-metal clean laboratory and the purchase of a new, cutting-edge quadrupole ICP-MS instrument dedicated to solution-based ultra-trace element analysis.
A link to the Memorial University Gazette article announcing the funding is here.
Demolition of the old "clean' trace element laboratory is underway. I look forward to providing updates as the project progresses.
