Spectroscopy Resource Center

The Spectroscopy Center provides access to optical spectroscopic equipment for use in studies of the structure, function and dynamics of biological macromolecules. The center has different types of spectroscopic instrumentation: Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), circular dichroism (CD) and surface plasmon resonance (SPR). Educational efforts are devoted both to training frequent users and providing general background in applications of spectroscopy to structural biology and chemistry. Investigators have access to nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers (one 400 mHz and one 600 mHz equipped with a cryoprobe) for use in studies of the structure, function and dynamics of macromolecules, as well as spectroscopic fingerprint of peptides and small organic molecules.
