LSSU student-hopefuls get backstage tour of new lab

NMR Instrument

MAGNETIC ACADEMICS – Lake Superior State University chemistry professor Barb Keller shows off her department’s state-of-the-art nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer during a behind the scenes tour on Sept. 30. The $400,000 instrument was purchased this past summer in part through a National Science Foundation grant, chemistry professor Adam Mosey as principal investigator. LSSU faculty and students use it on projects ranging from environmental-quality contract work, to research into new methods of testing pharmaceuticals. Almost 100 LSSU student-hopefuls and their families were visiting campus for an admissions open house that drew from as far away as Indiana. Go to lssu.edu/admissions for information on future events or to book your own private tour of Lake State’s facilities. (LSSU/John Shibley)
