NMR spectroscopy provides invaluable insights into the structural and dynamical features of biomolecular systems. It is particularly well suited to analyze multiple functional states, internal flexibility and interaction processes involving proteins at an atomic scale.

 Main application field: Structure, dynamics and interactions of biomolecular systems; Analysis of small amount of small molecules (especially natural products)


 ICSN: Five spectrometers (2*600 MHz, 700 MHz, 800 MHz and 950 MHz). For more details on these spectrometers, go to:

 I2BC: Two spectrometers (600 MHz and 700 MHz Bruker Avance III / NEO spectrometers, equipped with TCI (1H,13C, 15N, 2H) 5mm, z-gradients cryoprobes), go to:
