As far as I can tell, bulk Apollo lunar material is studied by the NASA
Lunar Science Institute. The guys that do the hands on work are known as the
Lunar Exploration and Analysis Group or LEAG. One of the scientists doing
analysis of moon rocks here at the University of Notre Dame uses the new
multiple-collector-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer or MC-ICP-MS
to determine the mineral composition of lunar impact melts to determine
their petrogenesis and place constraints on the impactors and target
