Biomolecular Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility

Facility Location

Biomolecular Science Building, #296, room 1105

Brief Mission

The facility provides high field NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) instrumentation to support the UMCP research community through  measurements of biomolecules, macromolecules and systems of biological interest.  The facility provides advanced training opportunities for students and acts as a hub for interdisciplinary collaborations. The facility also provides NMR analysis services for internal and external users. 

Hours of Operation


Services and Technologies Offered

  • We provide state-of-the-art high field NMR instrumentation for  structure determination and dynamic studies of biochemical, biological and macromolecular systems.
  • We provide advanced instruction and workshops on high-field NMR measurements and data interpretation.
  • We offer consulting services on sample isotope labeling, sampling methods, and multi-dimensional NMR methods including various 2D and 3D experiments.
  • We offer analytical services to characterize chemical structures and reactions, intermolecular interactions, physical properties such as diffusion constant and affinity.
  • The facility can analyze a wide range of samples by NMR, from small organic molecules, polymers that require high temperature NMR analysis, to macromoleculars such as proteins and nucleic acids.
