We aim to develop tools ensure that precious and fragile biological samples are quickly, reliably, and efficiently transferred into MAS rotors so that all of the powerful new SSNMR approaches can be applied to these systems.
Our goal is to improve NMR data acquisition hardware and software through development of software tools for automating some or (all of) the experimental setup and improving MAS probe designs for better overall sensitivity and resolution, providing enhanced instrument performance.
Ultimately, we want NMR to be an accessible and reliable tool for the biomedical research community. To achieve this, we are researching a platform for integrated data collection and analysis, developing automated processing to improve the quality, reproducibility, and improving NMR data processing by upgrading user interfaces to make NMR software more user friendly for both experts and non-experts.
Driving Biomedical Projects (DBPs)
DBPs represent systems that require development of technology with specific focuses on fundamental and/or translational impact, bottlenecks in NMR technologies, and unique sample characteristics.
How to become a DBP
NMRFAM is presently seeking out future DBPs from additional groups within the broader biomedical research community to explicitly achieve our goal of making NMR more accessible and user friendly, and ensure that this powerful technique can be applied to the most important biomedical research problems.
