PIRE: A U.S. - Dutch Mass Spectrometry Consortium for Advanced Modeling and Biological Structure and Imaging Applications
This MS PIRE program was developed to establish a United States – Dutch Mass Spectrometry Consortium to facilitate dramatic advances in several areas of analytical, biological, and physical chemistry. The research and educational activities associated with this program are centered about unique instrumentation and cyber-infrastructure that has been developed at two of the national research institutes of the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM) in the Netherlands, the FOM Institute for Plasma Physics “Rijnhuizen” and the FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics (AMOLF).Read more about MSPIRE.
The initial participants of this consortium include 10 U.S. research groups from 9 distinct institutions of higher learning and 2 research groups from the FOM institutes. The locations of the initial participant institutions are indicated by the red dots (•) on the map below. As this program has evolved, we have expanded the base of U.S. and international researchers involved in this consortium. In particular, the MS PIRE program has sought to recruit beginning investigators, and undergraduate researchers. The locations of new U.S. and international participant institutions are indicated by the blue dots (•) on the map.
