Former Director

Dr. Jane Strouse
Former Director of the Molecular Instrumentation Center
Strouse received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Florida and her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Madison-Wisconsin in 1975 partly in collaboration with Prof. Frank Anet at UCLA. She was then a postdoctoral scholar with Prof. Anet until 1980 when she became the Director of the department's Instrumentation Facility. From 2005 until her retirement, Strouse was the Director of the UCLA Molecular Instrumentation Center (MIC). She continues to serve on the steering committees of the Association of Managers of Magnetic Resonance Laboratories (since 1992) and the Southern California Users of Magnets (since 1996).
