CERE provides training and access to instrumentation and equipment which may not be available in individual laboratories, may only be needed periodically and not be practical for individual laboratories to obtain and maintain.
Faculty associated with CERE teach in the departments of Biological Sciences, Geosciences and Engineering. CERE provides laboratory space, instrumentation, and equipment for undergraduate research and hands on learning experiences. In addition, we provide teaching support to various graduate and undergraduate courses so that classes can use current analytical equipment in CERE.
Graduate students working towards MS and PhD degrees in Biological Sciences, Geosciences and Engineering all utilize CERE facilities. CERE provides hands on training for graduate students in sample processing, method development and analysis so as to make them self-sufficient in analyzing their samples.
