$70,000 of internal funding for equipment

Over the summer, Professors Bill Feighery and Gretchen Anderson were awarded a total of $70,000 worth of internal funding for instruments from the campus's "Unmet Needs" funds.   This has already provided a new UV-visible spectrometer for student labs and will also be used to purchase an HPLC.  Professor Doug McMillen, as Assistant Dean, was awarded $12,000 to support CLAS activities.
