Five new instruments that will unlock discoveries across the sciences and engineering have been selected to receive funding through the Provost and Dean for Research Transformative Equipment Initiative.

The initiative supports the purchase of instruments that enhance researchers’ abilities to explore new questions, as well as providing for the replacement and upgrade of existing equipment. Each year, faculty members are invited to apply for equipment costing at least $500,000. Proposals are evaluated based on the potential for innovative science, a well-formulated plan for maintaining state-of-the-art capabilities in shared facilities, and plans for broad use across units and departments.
