The SIF Celebrates 20 Years of Service

December 1, 2017 marks the SIF’s 20th anniversary. Dr. David Harris founded the Stable Isotope Facility at the University of California, Davis in 1997. Since then the facility has grown to support well over 190,000 analyses annually from academic, government, and private clients, and employs 13 full-time staff, including three senior scientists.


To celebrate, the SIF is holding an open house on December 1, 2017, with light refreshments in the 3001 PES conference room from 12:30 – 2:30pm. We’ll have door prizes for free analyses. Please come and enjoy the celebration. We’ll be happy to address questions about your sample preparation or our services. If you cannot attend the open house, please contact sif@ucdavis.edu to request a tour.


How has the SIF been a part of your research? In commemoration of our 20th anniversary, we are compiling a list of articles for our website. Please email sif@ucdavis.edu with your citations, including DOI if applicable.
