ND INBRE Metal Analysis Core
For information about ND INBRE (North Dakota IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence), its goals and participants, see ND INBRE.org
The aims of the Metal Analysis Core are to:
- To provide analytic capability in metal analysis to the ND INBRE partners and faculty in all participating institutions within North Dakota.
- To provide technical and professional expertise in ionomics to the ND INBRE partners and faculty in all participating institutions of ND.
- To develop and establish an educational network in ionomics to serve the post-graduate, graduate and undergraduate students comprising the ND INBRE network.
- To develop professional and technical relationships with divisions within the North Dakota Department of Health as ionomics applies to the environmental quality of the air, water and soil in ND.
The ND INBRE Metal Analysis Core carries out analyses for participants of ND INBRE, provides advice on analysis of metals and actively participates in collaborative research. See also our Laboratory Facilities.
