Dr. Anthony S. Stender, Assistant Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Ohio University, received two instrumentation grants over the summer in support of his research efforts.

The first grant was a “2019 Starter Grant” from the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh and the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh. This annual grant is given to an assistant professor in analytical chemistry who is in the first three years of their initial appointment.

“I think my students were really excited when I spent some of the money on ergonomic chairs for the lab,” Stender said.  “Anything to make the students more productive at work is worth it.  I was more excited about having money to spend upgrading the research equipment in my lab.”

Stender also was the principal investigator on an 1804 Grant that was funded by Ohio University. His project was titled, “A multipurpose spectrometer for forensic chemistry instruction and faculty research.”

“I am very grateful for the support and assistance of the co-investigators on this project, Eric Stinaff, Katherine Cimatu, Jixin Chen, and Becky Barlag. I am also thankful that Ohio University offers the 1804 grant for projects like this.

“It was a long summer and fall, waiting for the spectrometer to arrive. Now that it’s finally here, my lab is learning how to use it and putting it through its paces. I am really looking forward to utilizing it in my microscopy class in the spring, and of course, to start collecting a ton of data for our research projects.”
