Jason Gillmore, Professor of Chemistry, and Jeff Johnson, Professor of Chemistry, have received a $12,000 award from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement Cottrell Instrumentation Supplements Award for the project titled Into the Future – Updating a GC and GC/MS Instrumentation Suite at Hope College to Extend Instrument Life and Improve Network Security.
This project will upgrade the Chemistry Department’s gas chromatography (GC) systems to replace aging computer systems, update software, and perform maintenance on this equipment to ensure ongoing operations in the coming years. These GC systems are vital to Hope College—they serve more than half of the researchers in the Chemistry Department and at least 18 faculty members across the Division of Natural and Applied Services. Collectively, these GC systems analyze over 2,000 samples per year.
Congratulations on your award, Jason and Jeff!
