NSF awards Rice $1.7 million grant to acquire new mass spectrometer

The NSF has awarded Rice a $1.7 million grant for a time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometer (TOF-SIMS), which will allow Rice scientists to study chemical compositions and molecular structures of substances ranging from cells to rocks. Dr. Masiello and department chair Cin-Ty Lee are co-investigators on the grant, with principal investigator Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering professor Rafael Verduzco.
