Project Details


This proposal requests funds to purchase a CD/MCD spectrometer
for shared use by a core group of six NIH-supported investigators
in two departments. This instrumentation is not currently
available at Carnegie Mellon University or at any other regional
institution. The CD/MCD spectrometer will support research
relating to many aspects of molecular and macromolecular
structures and interactions based on the unique sensitivity of
these powerful spectroscopic techniques. The range of
applications which are possible for these spectroscopies ensures
that this instrument will be extensively utilized both by the core
user group and other researchers who have expressed interest in
the proposed facilities. The requested instrument will be installed
at the Department of Chemistry, Carnegie Mellon University and
operated under the supervision of the Principal Investigator who
will head an advisory committee consisting of the core user group
which will administer the facilities. This advanced
instrumentation, complemented by the existing resources of the
user group, is expected to be extremely valuable in developing
important new research areas.
