The TraceLab was established through the generous support of the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust together with contributions from the College of the Environment,  Earth and Space Sciences, School of Oceanography, School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, Quaternary Research Center, NOAA-PMEL,  and the Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean.

The lead PI of the facility is Assistant Professor Alex Gagnon of Oceanography (Gagnon Lab) but 12 other faculty and researchers from across the UW community contributed to building the facility and continue to support TraceLab with their expertise.

The facility is managed by Research Scientist Tamas Ugrai (tamasu@uw.edu) who brings more than a decade of industry experience to the TraceLab.
