About Owen M. McDougal
Dr. Owen McDougal is a Professor with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Boise State University, where he has been a member of the faculty since 2006. He holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Dr. McDougal’s research interests include nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, biomedical research of neurotoxins, and properties of biomass fuel briquettes. Dr. McDougal’s teaching interests focus on the instruction of Organic Spectroscopy. He has worked toward a systematic approach to introduce NMR, IR, and GC-MS instrumentation and to provide students with the opportunity to become very proficient in the analysis of data acquired from this instrumentation. In addition to publishing and presenting, Dr. McDougal has worked on a variety of grant projects. In 2009 he served as a collaborator on a NIH Grant from the INBRE Program of the National Center for Research Resources.
