The Duke Cancer Institute's High Resolution Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Shared Resource is an integral part of the Duke University NMR Spectroscopy Center.
The NMR Shared Resource provides members of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center with cost-effective access to state-of-the-art instrumentation for the characterization of biomolecules, metabolites, and molecular assemblies and enables the study of molecular mechansims of biomedical interest.
For structural biology, a full suite of methods for the determination of protein structures is provided and supported by experienced senior scientists.
The resource maintains an interactive, hands-on environment for investigators interested in using advanced as well as routine NMR methods in their cancer research and encourages interdisciplinary collaborative efforts.
The High Resolution NMR Shared Resource is located on the first floor of the B-wing in the Levine Science Research Center (LSRC) and maintains 5,000 square feet of modern laboratory and office space conveniently accessible to all members of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The space was custom designed to house these facilities, providing ideal, environmentally controlled rooms for the sophisticated NMR instrumentation. The overall design of the resource is intended to encourage interactive communication among users.
