NMR / Screening

Overview of Services

The Biomolecular NMR Core Facility offers state-of-the-art high field NMR instrumentation for structural studies of biological macromolecules. The facility also assists in elucidating structures to support organic synthesis projects, and in NMR-based drug discovery. The resources of the facility can be accessed either on a fee-for-service or on a collaborative use basis. The NMR instruments are accessible to trained users 24 hours per day, year-round.
