RENO, Nev., (August 11, 2015) – Hamilton Company announces a product grant program that will provide syringes and needles to undergraduate and graduate teaching labs around the world. Up to five grants of $1,000 each, along with instructional materials, will be awarded each month, with winners selected from applications submitted online. The applications describe the proposed application, technique and specific syringe(s) to be used. Additional information and application forms are available at: www.hamiltongrants.com
Grants will be awarded primarily based on the potential to positively impact students’ learning experience, with consideration given to the proposed application and technique used. The first group of winners includes a course on physical chemistry of biochemical processes at Dartmouth College, a research project on synthetic inorganic and organometallic chemistry at the University of Manitoba, a graduate course on biochemical methods at Eastern New Mexico University, a neuroscience study on sleep and energy metabolism in rodent models at the University of Arizona, and an introductory physical chemistry course for biochemistry majors at Misericordia University (Pennsylvania).
Molly L. Croteau, a chemistry Ph.D. candidate at Dartmouth College, submitted a winning 2015 grant application and has also received previous grants from Hamilton.
“We have used the syringes from the grant programs to publish numerous papers about metal-protein research,” Croteau commented. “In just two short years, the syringes from Hamilton have provided a means to conduct all this novel research, and we thank Hamilton for supporting our science.”
