Become an NMRFAM Collaborator

NMRFAM actively seeks collaborative projects that present substantial technical challenges and serve to drive the development of the center’s Technology Research and Development (TR&D) Projects.

NMRFAM’s current TR&D Projects focus on the following advances

  • Automation in NMR data collection, spectral analysis and assignment, and structure determination of small- and moderate-sized proteins and RNA molecules.
  • Determination of the structure, dynamics, and functional properties of challenging proteins and nucleic acids and their complexes by NMR and SAXS approaches.
  • NMR-based studies of metabolomics and natural products including LC-MS solid-phase extraction of molecules of interest.

Important points about collaborative projects

  • Collaborative projects actively involve NMRFAM staff members and are expected to lead to joint publications and structures. Publications
  • Collaborative users are charged for spectrometer time used in data collection, additional staff time is not charged for collaborative projects, but co-authorship is required for the involved staff member in any resulting publication(s). Spectrometers and Fees
  • NMRFAM sponsor acknowledgements must be included in the acknowledgements portion of any publications resulting from collaborations with NMRFAM. Acknowledgements
  • If the project is accepted as an NMRFAM collaboration, it will be assigned to one or more NMRFAM staff members who will guide it to completion.
  • Contact Dave Aceti with a completed collaboration form below to initiate a collaboration.
