Major Collaborations

A large part of what we do is help our colleagues understand the organic compounds of astrobiological interest in their samples. In addition, to samples we rely on the complementarity of different analytical techniques with our collaborators:

NASA Goddard Cosmic Ice Lab
NASA Goddard Interstellar Grain Lab
NASA Ames Astrochemistry Lab
Carnegie Institution of Washington Biogeochemistry Group
Penn State Astrobiology Research Center/Chris House group
Wisconsin Astrobiology Research Consortium/Nita Sahai group
Stardust
Sample Analysis at Mars
OSIRIS-REx
Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life

We are also thankful for the meteorites generously provided by the ANSMET teams, NASA JSC, and the Smithsonian Institution.
