Like all research universities, UNH receives, stores and disposes of lots and lots and lots of potentially nasty stuff –  explosive, flammable, radioactive or corrosive – used for research and classes. And like all places with complicated inventories, UNH sometimes has trouble keeping track of it all, which is why they were fined by the EPA two decades ago, and then developed an online management system called CEMS that has been licensed to a slew of other schools and two biotech firms.

I’ll grant you that inventory management is not exciting, but hopefully my Monitor column about CEMS isn’t too bad. You can find out by reading it right here.
