KCL New Spectroscopy Research Facility

Research, General News

KCL has expanded their Nuclear Magnetic Resonance facility in order to respond to growing research needs

Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. Research at KCL uses the facility in two wide-ranging areas of biomedical research and metabolomics.

In structural biology the researchers look to understand the function and structure of proteins that are of interest to human health. The new 800 MHz spectrometer will allow researchers to find out more about protein structure, including its 3D structure, interaction with drugs and different movements within the molecules.

In the NMR facility they examine the range of fluid for example urine or blood through metabolomics. The new 600 MHz spectrometer delivers detailed information on metabolites which may be linked to changes such as stress or progression of disease which will allow researchers to analyse these fluids.
