Core Facilities

The Mass Spectrometry Core Facility hosted a workshop on November 28th focused on Metabolomics and Lipidomics, sponsored by Waters Corporation. This aspect of the “omics” pipeline is focused on small molecules and their metabolites and how changes in their concentrations can be used to understand changes in metabolic pathways in organisms resulting from external stimuli (e.g. drug therapy, dietary changes) or as biomarkers of disease. Dr. Suraj Dhungana from Waters Corp.

Eighty scientists and microscopy enthusiasts from around the New England region converged at the new Institute for Applied Life Sciences at UMass Amherst to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the New England Society for Microscopy.

IALS took delivery of a $3.2 million, 7.3-ton, 3-Tesla magnet and related equipment on Nov. 17 for use in the Human Magnetic Resonance (MR) Center in the Life Science Laboratories Building.
