Biomolecular NMR Facility

Researchers from across the world are invited to study the 3D structures and interactions of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, lipids and metabolites at the Henry Wellcome Building for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (HWB-NMR). We offer a £10m national resource based in Birmingham, providing scientists with insights into the molecular basis of human health, cancer progression and infectious diseases.
