A team of multinational scientists, jointly led by Dr. Abuzar Kabir at Florida International University, Miami, Florida, USA and Dr. Marcello Locatelli at University of Chieti–Pescara “G. d’ “Annunzio”, Chieti, Italy have developed a novel analytical technique based on fabric phase sorptive extraction (FPSE) that allows analysis of whole blood without converting it into plasma or serum.
In collaboration with chemistry professor Francisco Fernandez-Lima, the Biomolecular Sciences Institute (BSI) and PREMIER Biosoft are pleased to announce their research partnership to provide advanced mass spectrometry-based data analysis solutions for lipidomics.
An international team of scientists led by Florida International University's Alexander M. Mebel, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Chemistry Professor Ralf I. Kaiser, and Tom J. Millar of Queen’s University Belfast (Northern Ireland) discovered a novel chemical route to form silicon dioxide (SiO2) - the key molecular building block of terrestrial sand in interstellar space. The team announced their findings in the February 2018 issue of Nature Communications.
Dr. Jean-Hubert Olivier, of the Department of Chemistry at University of Miami, will visit FIU to present a seminar entitled, "Tuning Structure-Function Properties of π-Conjugated Superstructures by Redox-Assisted Self-Assembly"
