Platform for Research and Analysis in Environmental Sciences

The Platform for Research and Analysis in Environmental Sciences (PRASE) is a 1000 m2 facility located in Hadath campus. It has been functioning since December 2009 and equipped with the newest technology.

The platform established new materials, device structures for chemical and physical analysis as well as for molecular and cellular biology. It serves research in most disciplines (biology, geology, hydrochemistry, health sciences, engineering). Its aims are focalized on many goals:

- The Platform is open to the entire Lebanese university community and to other research communities in the country in many fields (industry, environment, energy, material sciences, …)

- Analysis services

- Fellowship and training mission for Ph. D. and master students

- Cooperation mission between scientific research groups.

PRASE is destined to complete other specialized research groups and laboratories in the Lebanese university and provide joints for multi-disciplinary cooperative research. The Platform is dotted with sophisticated instruments such as X ray diffraction, NMR spectrometer, FT-IR and Fluorescence spectrometer and other equipment. Introducing new equipment and upgrading are organized as a function of scientific need.
