first lab supplies arrive!
Almost 1 year after John Paul and I thought up of the idea of SciBridge, our first experiment kit supplies have begun to arrive at UT-Austin! Orders have been placed at the major chemical suppliers (Fisher Scientific, VWR, Sigma Aldrich, etc.) and packages delivered to the campus. The process has gone seamlessly with UT's administration of the MRS Foundation account. I am glad to have their purchasing power on our side, as well as the assistance of my research group's administrative assistant, Ms. Lauren Murrah and my postdoc advisor, Prof. Arumugam Manthiram. Dr. Jia Ming Chen, the education director of UCLA's CNSI and SciBridge senior advisor, has been guiding us through the purchasing process to make sure we don't pay more than we have to and thus maximize our kit contents.
Meanwhile, John Paul is busy preparing for the first workshop at Makerere University. Friend and JUAMI member, Dr. Adrian Hightower, has been assisting us by bringing a key "ingredient" for the experiment kits with him on his trip to Uganda this summer. John Paul will update you on Adrian's great visit to Makerere U in a blog post very soon. Many exciting things are happening at SciBridge; thank you for following our journey!
