Spectroscopy Resource Center
The University maintains facilities for nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy on campus. The University is also a member of the New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC) and our researchers can access the NYBSC's instruments and support. Educational efforts are devoted both to training frequent users and providing general background in applications of NMR spectroscopy to structural biology and chemistry. Occasional users of the facilities may have spectra produced for them. More frequent users are encouraged and trained to operate the instruments themselves.
The on campus Spectroscopy Resource Center has two nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers (one 400 MHz with a BBFO probe and one 600 MHz with a TCI cryoprobe) for use in studies of the structure, function and dynamics of macromolecules, as well as spectroscopic fingerprint of peptides and small organic molecules. The Center offers extensive training in basic and advanced NMR experiments and also coordinates access to high field spectrometers (700, 800, and 900 MHz) at the New York Structural Biology Center. Please note that use of the NYSBC's instruments should be scheduled two months in advance.
Oversight and information on the use of the optical spectroscopic equipment for studies of the structure, function and dynamics of biological macromolecules has been transferred from The Spectroscopy Center to the High-Throughput Screening Resource Center.
