PPG Industries Foundation pledges $500k for University of Pittsburgh nanomaterials lab

Abstract:
The PPG Industries Foundation has pledged $500,000 to the University of Pittsburgh's chemistry department to build a nanomaterials characterization lab.

"The University of Pittsburgh has been a leader in this complex and important field of research, and PPG's support will help us renovate and improve our laboratory assets to move ahead rapidly in the international nanoscience arena," said John Cooper, dean of arts and sciences at Pitt. "Infrastructure supported by this gift will enable recruitment of world-class researchers, faculty with the expertise to educate the next generation of nano scientists and position the University as a major contributor to this new frontier of knowledge."
