17 Jul NIH division grants UW-Madison $1.6 million for device
Madison, Wis. — Using a $1.6 million federal grant, the University of Wisconsin-Madison is adding to its collection of large scientific instruments a device that will help it search for new antibiotics and drugs and perform other research.
The device will live at the National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison and consists of a mass spectrometer, a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer and a liquid-chromatography system, integrated into a single instrument. The facility will be the first to have a device combining all three technologies, according to a university news release.
This makes UW-Madison one of 20 universities that is receiving funding from the National Center for Research Resources, a branch of the National Institutes of Health, to purchase tools to help them stay at at the leading edge of research in biology and medicine.
