Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy has become a core technology in basic and applied research in the molecular life sciences and a cornerstone of structural biology. Texas A&M University (TAMU) has identified structural biology as a signature program that needs to expand on the College Station campus. This world-class NMR facility, ideally located for the current and future users, will allow TAMU to become a world renowned leader in biomolecular NMR.
The location for the new NMR facility creates physical proximity and programmatic partnerships between the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics and The Texas A&M University System Health Science Center College of Medicine and other groups in structural and computational biology. This facility enhances the collective visibility of all structural biology-based initiatives on campus.
