The Bavarian NMR Center (BNMRZ) is a joint research infrastructure of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Helmholtz Center Munich (HMGU), located both at the Chemistry Department of TUM and the HMGU campus.

Founded in 2001 with support from the State of Bavaria, it represents an international competitive, state-of-the-art NMR facility for the development of NMR methods and their application to biological macromolecules in biomedical research. The BNMRZ provides access to NMR measurements and expertise for researchers in Munich, Bavaria, and (inter)national users.

Since spring 2017 the BNMRZ research groups, NMR spectrometers and laboratory facilities are located in a new research building funded by the Wissenschaftsrat, which includes the acquisition of a 1.2 GHz spectrometer to be installed in the near future.

Research at BNMRZ focuses on the development and application of advanced NMR methods for studying the structure, dynamics and molecular interactions of biological macromolecules, computational approaches for integrative structural biology, structured-based drug discovery, pulse sequence and methods development for solution and solid-state NMR spectroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging.

Together with the Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance Center in Frankfurt, the BNMRZ coordinates the G-NMR network of German NMR centers to promote networking of teaching, training and development of novel techniques, supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Magnets moved:
Five of our magnets (a 500, two 600 MHz, a 400 MHz wide bore and a 500 MHz wide bore) have been moved from the Chem. Dept. building into our new NMR hall. All five are back on field and "working" again.
