Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

We provide competitive modern facilities for the analysis of the structure & dynamics of biomolecules and their interactions

We celebrate the arrival and successful installation of our new Bruker SampleJet autosampler!!!

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is used to determine the structure and dynamics of biomolecules in solution. NMR can provide a wealth of information about biomolecules in the solution state, including:

  • atomic resolution structure of proteins, DNA, and RNA
  • fast and accurate structural data for complexes between biomolecules and to small molecules, e.g. pharmaceutically active ligands
  • information on the dynamics of biomolecules
  • data elucidating states of ensembles of molecules such as unfolded or excited states of proteins

The Leeds University bioNMR facility is based in its own building within the School of Molecular and Cellular Biology in the Faculty of Biological Sciences and is also part of the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology. It offers a range of facilities to researchers from the acquisition of simple 'one off' 1D spectra of samples to the design and implementation of complete projects for the structural and dynamic analysis of biomolecular systems in solution.

Please follow the links to the left for more information about the facility, where to find us and how to setup experiments and collaborations from both within and outside of the University of Leeds. Alternatively, contact us directly using the web interface.
