UNO names Tarr first Eurofins Professor of Analytical Chemistry
The University of New Orleans (UNO) recently announced that Dr. Matthew Tarr will be the university’s first Eurofins Professor of Analytical Chemistry, an endowed professorship focused on exposing students to the bioanalytical arena.
“This endowed professorship further deepens our relationship with Eurofins and will ensure that our students are receiving outstanding instruction and skills that will serve them well in the job market,” UNO College of Sciences Dean Steve Johnson, citing an existing internship program, said.
Tarr has worked at UNO since 1995 and is a faculty fellow in the university’s Advanced Materials Research Institute. He is a research professor of chemistry, who chaired UNO’s chemistry department for six years, from 2009 to 2015.
“Dr. Tarr is an outstanding choice to head this program, with his extensive research in the area of analytical chemistry and the leadership that he has demonstrated over the years in the scientific community,” Eurofins Central Analytical Laboratories President John Reuther said. “To date, UNO has been an excellent partner for Eurofins since our company moved into the UNO Research and Technology Park. The interns and graduates that we hire from their science programs integrate well into our systems, and they have greatly contributed to the success and record-breaking growth of our laboratory here in New Orleans.”
