IMSERC Mission

IMSERC’s mission is to further research at Northwestern by providing access to and educating students on the proper use of instrumentation needed for molecular structure characterization. The Northwestern University Integrated Molecular Structure Education and Research Center (IMSERC) has been established to educate Northwestern students to be scientific leaders of 21st century, and support world-class research. All research at Northwestern utilizing novel compounds based on small molecules relies on IMSERC to characterize these molecules before application testing can begin. As a “one stop shop” for molecular structure characterization, all instrumentation and staff scientist offices are located in a single location. Read more
