Medical NMR Facility
Welcome to the Medical NMR Facility

The Carver College of Medicine Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility supports the biomedical research community with an 800 MHz instrument, a wide variety of techniques and the expertise to solve research problems. A full spectroscopic and interpretive service is offered, as well as assistance and training for researchers who perform their own experiments. Techniques for working with biological molecules in challenging media, high resolution spectra, and multidimensional spectra are facility specialties.

Examples of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy include:

  • Determining three-dimensional structures of proteins in solution

  • Monitoring the fate of a chemical species as it is processed by a cell culture

  • Identifying and quantifying components in a mixture

  • Characterizing the dynamics of ligand binding and aggregation in a solution
