At the conclusion of each year, the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) takes a moment to look back and reflect on the accomplishments of the college’s community. Among this year’s standouts, a story by Sarah Lynn Traver Saunders about a $40 million award from the NSF to establish a network for advanced NMR across three institutions! Congrats again to professors Katherine Henzler-Wildman and Chad Rienstra on this achievement. Henzler-Wildman and Rienstra are leading the installation of the first of two new nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers planned for the Network for Advanced NMR (NAN). NAN links the UConn School of Medicine, the University of Georgia and UW–Madison’s National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison.
