CSB NMR Facility
Biomolecular NMR Facility - Vanderbilt
Initiating a first Contact
Markus Voehler is always available to discuss the applications of NMR to any research project.
Non-Vanderbilt users wishing to to access the 900 MHz instrument should contact the facility director, Dr. Markus Voehler at 615-322-1573 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also submit an outreach form to initiate a project.
New User Information
Researchers gain access to the Facility through the Center for Structural
Biology, or by contacting the Chair of the Users Committee Prof. Chuck Sanders
or one of the other biomolecular NMR faculty (Walter Chazin, Steve Fesik,
Mike Stone). Setting up a project requires approval of your faculty member and
a source of funding for the users fees. Approved researchers may obtain a user
account on the spectrometers or access to NMR scheduling pages by following these steps:
Since this is a multi-user system, it is necessary for everybody to adhere to the facility policy. Users are expected to follow these rules so that the facility operates at maximum efficiency.
All users undergo a training course before gaining access to the spectrometers. Please refer to the training course page for more information. Once the user has been accredited by the NMR staff he/she will be given access to the request queue web pages and passwords for the spectrometers.
NMR is a sophisticated technique and can be used at many levels. The most basic applications of NMR to biological macromolecules can be applied with basic training provided by our training courses. On the other hand, learning Biomolecular NMR can constitute an entire graduate student or postdoctoral period. The serious spectroscopist needs to be committed to spending several months learning the techniques.
