University of Cambridge

The Biomolecular NMR Facility located in the Biochemistry Department of the University of Cambridge has a wide range of expertise in solution NMR. Applications include structural and functional investigations of folded globular and membrane proteins, intrinsically disordered proteins, RNA and the study of macromolecular interactions. The facility hosts a 800 MHz spectrometer; another very-high field spectrometer is located in the NMR facility of the Department of Chemistry.
