Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility

The Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy provides instruments and services to assist with a full range of NMR studies.

Faculty within the NMR facility provide comprehensive support for researchers in the areas of structure-based drug design, including structure characterization, protein dynamics, and fragment-based drug design. For researchers conducting investigations in the area of drug delivery, the facility also provides complementary support to services available through the Mass Spectrometry Facility at the School of Pharmacy. Support provided includes the detection and quantification of pharmaceuticals (pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism) and biomolecules (proteomics and metabolites) from complex systems.

The facility features two spectrometers:

  • Varian INOVA 500 4-channels; H1; H2; C13; F19; N15; P31
  • Varian 400 MR 2-channels broadband multi-nuclei

For additional information about services and training offered through the NMR Facility, please contact the facility manager, Kellie Hom, PhD.
