Helping Researchers Solve Problems and Accelerate Productivity


The Molecular Structures Group (MSG) manages shared resources and work collaboratively with faculty and students to ensure projects flow seamlessly from one laboratory to another. Quality control is monitored throughout all steps of the project. By combining techniques, researchers are able to create more detailed models on molecules and discover associations that might have otherwise been overlooked.


The staff within the MSG work with researchers to acquire data, train on the operation lab instrumentation, and help with planning experiments and interpreting the data. In addition, each of the facilities offer consultations on proposal and manuscript preparation and are frequently co-authors on publications and investigators on grant proposals.
