GRC NMR Facility

As a research specialist, I am responsible for the daily operation on NMR facility and assist researchers carrying out NMR related researches. I have dedicated myself to provide competent and efficient routine service, as well as all aspects of advance technical support on NMR spectroscopy. The duty of my job includes: keeping track of machine time usage; supervising the facility staff members; training users on using NMR spectrometers; developing and implementing new NMR experiments; assisting users setting up advanced NMR experiments; advising users on specific NMR experiments and applications; and providing technical consultation. My expertise is using biophysical methods, especially the NMR approach, to obtain structural and functional information for biomolecules.
