Very - and Ultra - High Field NMR for the physical and life sciences
To maintain the UK's leading position in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) for research and development, ca. £20m capital is being made available to procure ultra-high field NMR systems (≥0.95 GHz) and upgrade existing very-high field NMR instruments (≥800 MHz) to support the UK's fundamental and applied research across a range of disciplines within life and physical sciences.
The aim of the investment is to establish a national network of NMR provision at a range of very-high and ultra-high fields and configurations. By creating a networked national infrastructure open to researchers from both academia and industry, the highly-specialised equipment can be managed to maximise usage and outputs, and new collaborations can be enabled and supported. This investment will help to maintain UK leadership across a wide range of research in the fields of chemistry, biology and materials science.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is managing the call on behalf of a group of Research Councils that also includes MRC, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
