SRIF RESEARCH

SRIF is designed to accommodate researchers from the various natural-science departments at George Mason University. The facility is housed in Room 221 and several labs on the 3rd floor of Discovery Hall on the GMU Prince William campus. SRIF provides a laboratory environment suitable for short-term or continuing analytical investigations. This facility was established by the College of Arts and Sciences to promote interaction among faculty and students from various disciplines.

Title: Identify urinary compounds in manned wolf
Ph.D. Students: Marieke Kester
SRIF Instrument: Agilent 7890A -5975C Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer
Brief Description: The study’s goals are to use GC-MS to identify urinary compounds possibly involved in olfactory reproductive communication in the maned wolf and then to use bioassays to test suspected pheromones using behavioral studies of the maned wolf.
