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

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.

Further information on the BNMRZ history and the research building opened in 2017 can be found here.

 

Richard R. Ernst †

We are mourning the death of Richard R. Ernst, who held an honorary doctorate of the TUM Department of Chemistry and had received the Nobelprize for Chemistry 1991 "for his contributions to the development of the methodology of high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy".
