The Campus Chemical Instrument Center (CCIC) was founded in 1981 as a unit of the Office of Research. The mission of the CCIC is to provide state-of-the-art research facilities for the entire campus in three areas: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics. Since the NMR, MS and Proteomics Facilities are central hubs for the Ohio NMR and Ohio MS Consortiums, respectively, all researchers in the colleges and universities of the State of Ohio have access to all facilities of the CCIC with the same user fees. The OSU Office of Research provides personnel support of the CCIC. Equipment funding has been provided by Ohio Board of Regents, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and Office of Research.
