The MNMR Center is a non-profit organization run through the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota. It is dedicated to the two-pronged task of serving the NMR-based research needs of the University and providing education in the implementation of NMR techniques to biomedical research. The MNMR Center is committed to providing access to resources, facilitating collaborations between faculty and other UMN scientists, and helping to strengthen proposals for extramural funding. Four major research areas have been identified as strong throughout the University, broadly defined as: Structural Biology, Metabolomics, Small Molecules and Drugs, and Soft and Hard Matter. The mission of the NMR Center is to enhance the research infrastructure available for faculty involved in these disciplines by ensuring access to state-of-the-art for both solution and solid-state NMR. Users outside the University of Minnesota system may have access to all of this instrumentation either via collaboration or with a fee-based agreement. We strongly encourage national and international users!
