Bavarian NMR Center
The Bavarian NMR Center (BNMRZ) is a joint research infrastructure of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU), located at the Chemistry Department of TUM. It was founded in 2001 with support from the State of Bavaria to establish a state-of-the-art NMR facility for applications to biological macromolecules, based on the existing high-field spectrometers (750 and 900 MHz) that were funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
The BNMRZ provides access for research groups mainly in Bavaria, but also beyond. With the establishment of a Chair in Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy at the Department of Chemistry (TUM) and the associated Institute of Structural Biology at the Helmholtz Zentrum München in 2007, the TUM, HMGU and the State of Bavaria express their continued commitment and support for the BNMRZ as an international competitive research centre for the development of NMR methods and their application to biological macromolecules in biomedical research.
