Tanner Schaub is the director of the Research Cores Program at New Mexico State University. An initiative of the NMSU Office of the Vice President for Research, the RCP manages and supports key research resources, to improve sustainability and access for the benefit of NMSU researchers and collaborators. The RCP also directs investment and strategy for the formation of new research infrastructure.
Prior to joining NMSU in 2008, Dr. Schaub was a staff scientist at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory where his work focused on the design, manufacture and application of ultrahigh resolution magnetic resonance mass spectrometry systems. Dr. Schaub’s research effort at NMSU established an instrumentation laboratory that supports a variety of in-house and collaborative research projects with applications that range from cancer research to the characterization of next-generation biofuels and produced water. The advanced mass spectrometry platforms established there have served a range of proteomic analyses and other biomedical research, as well as extensive interactions with collaborators in the biofuel and petroleum industries.
