When thinking about scientific discoveries, many do not consider the devices or instruments it takes to complete the research. However, the University of Notre Dame’s Radiation Laboratory’s Scientific Glassblowing Shop (RLSG) offers a distinctive service that helps advance research in the areas of drug discovery, physics, and more. 

The Scientific Glassblowing Shop works with researchers in the design and fabrication of specialty scientific apparatus, as well as to repair or modify existing glassware for specific needs.
