About us

Henry Wellcome Building at duskWe offer open access to seven NMR spectrometers at the Henry Wellcome Building, a national NMR facility based in Birmingham and affiliated with the Institute of Cancer & Genomic Sciences within the College of Medical and Dental Sciences.

New and proven technologies for structural biologydrug design, and metabolomics are developed and provided at HWB•NMR by its staff and a growing community of NMR users including many postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.

A team of six NMR staff within the Institute of Cancer & Genomic Sciences and School of Biosciences manage the facility's operations, and provide personal consultation, high-level training, collaborative expertise and hands-on spectrometer access.

We welcome enquiries from prospective new users. Our services have been accessed by users from over thirty UK-based universities, a dozen groups from across Europe, and several companies involved in biomedical, biochemical and pharmaceutical research and development.
