Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has had a major impact across the physical, life and medical sciences. The technique is enormously versatile, and in the life sciences allows the characterisation of samples ranging from purified biological macromolecules through to complex metabolite mixtures, living cells, tissues and whole organisms. It is a key player in the fields of structural biology, metabolomics and drug discovery - please visit the Fragment-Based Drug Design (FBDD) Facility newly established in SOLES for more information about these latter areas.
The School houses three high-field Bruker NMR spectrometers: an Avance III-400 widebore, an Avance III-600 and an Avance III-800, as well as computing facilities for the processing and analysis of NMR data. Both of the 600 and 800 NMR spectrometers are equipped with cryogenic probeheads and the 600 is also equipped with a SampleJet autosampling robot.
