IUPUI NMR Center
IUPUI Physics Department
402 N. Blackford St.
Indianapolis, IN 46202

Research at the NMR Center is on molecular structure and dynamics with focus on biological systems. The Center is constantly looking for interested users from both the IU system and the outside. We offer services for specific NMR measurements as well as expertise for development of pilot studies. If you work on proteins, lipids, or nucleic acids talk to us to find out how NMR can expand your research.
