The Ontario Cancer Institute/University Health Network High Field NMR Facility

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy allows researchers to probe the molecular structure and dynamics of biomolecules at atomic resolution. A new high-field NMR facility situated in the Toronto Medical Discovery Tower aims to permit inter-disciplinary collaboration between cancer researchers at OCI.


How to apply for NMR time?

Academic, government and industrial researchers are encouraged to submit requests for NMR time. Due to a high cost of maintenance and operation of the NMR facilities, a NMR user fee will be charged as of April 1st, 2010.
