Transforming the future of discovery

The development of new tools and measurement techniques is an essential component of the scientific process, allowing researchers to open entirely new avenues for investigation.  Yale University supports a wide variety of state-of-the art core instrumentation and engineering facilities to support innovative research.  

In 2018, Yale released the report of the University Science Strategy Committee, identifying the most promising opportunities for investment across scientific disciplines. Instrumentation is one of four recommended areas for cross-cutting investment by Yale.  The report of the committee can be read here:  USSC Report.

This website is a work in progress and is intended to serve as a repository of information about instrumentation efforts at Yale.  For more information about this website, please contact Wright Lab Program Manager Victoria Misenti or email instrumentation@yale.edu.
