News from HWB-NMR
HWB-NMR's annual NMR user symposium takes place on Fri 8 Dec 2023 at HWB-NMR. Join us for some great talks, news and views, and to hear about the latest developments from the CcpNmr Team also, who will be running a hands-on Analysis workshop at HWB-NMR after lunch on Thur 7 Dec. Please email Dr Sara Whittaker to register for the symposium, and/or to attend the workshop please register on the Workshop Registration page. We look forward to seeing you!
1.2 GHz NMR arrives on UK shores in 2025 - the world's highest field NMR spectrometer! HWB-NMR expects to take delivery of its second gigahertz instrument by mid-summer 2025. The 1.2 GHz spectrometer is jointly funded by the University of Birmingham and UKRI/EPSRC and will be equipped for pushing the boundaries in both solution and solid state NMR of biomolecules.
We are pleased to be partners on the recent EU Commission funded project, "Remote NMR (R-NMR)", that aims to establish wide-spread remote access for all users to NMR spectrometers across Europe. Including 26 European NMR facilities, the consortium will work together to create guidelines and best practice for remote access to NMR instrumentation, for storage of and secure access to NMR data, and for remote training of users, including training of non-experts. Part of the program will be to monitor CO2 consumption, with the aim of reducing the overall CO2 footprint of NMR infrastructures. Please visit the website for further information.
We are excited to offer UK-based academics, involved in biomedical research, Wellcome-supported free access on the new 1.0 GHz, 900 (& 800) MHz spectrometers. Get in touch
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Teresa Carlomagno as the new Director of HWB-NMR from 1 October 2021. We look forward to Professor Carlomagno joining the UK NMR community and taking the GHz facility forward in this new decade and beyond.
UK's highest field NMR spectrometer (1.0 GHz) has arrived at HWB-NMR under blue skies - early stages of installation currently taking place - very exciting!
The new 800 MHz NEO spectrometer console has been installed and the 5mm TCI cryoprobe (with 19F capability) is now available to use. A 1.7mm TCI cryoprobe to follow in 2019. Free Wellcome-Trust supported access to UK users! Please email Dr Sara Whittaker for access.
HWB-NMR has been selected by UKRI to host a national 1.0 GHz spectrometer for solution state biomolecular NMR research. We expect to take delivery of the new magnet by April 2020 and for it to be operational in the summer of 2020. Free Wellcome-Trust supported access to UK users!
The Wellcome Trust has funded 5 years of free access to the 800 and 900 MHz spectrometers for UK-based users involved in biomedical research from 2018. The award includes a welcome 800 MHz spectrometer upgrade. Please email Dr Sara Whittaker for access.
