Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy provides information on molecular structure and dynamics at atomic level resolution. The UVa Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance Facility facilitates and promotes research which utilizes NMR spectroscopy to examine molecular structure and dynamics.

About the Facility

The Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance Facility is available to all investigators at the University of Virginia and has four NMR spectrometers. They all execute experiments typically used for structure elucidation and dynamics characterization of both small and large (ie. protein) molecules in solution. All spectrometers are connected to the internet. Data can be readily transferred for remote processing and the campus has a site license for Mestrenova NMR data processing and visualization software. Assistance is available for all who wish to use NMR spectroscopy.  Advice on all aspects of solution NMR spectroscopy is available from the facility manager, Jeff Ellena, who has 40 years of experience with application of NMR to scientific research.
