Facilities

Our major research facilities are extensive. Dr. Mark Mashuta manages the x-ray crystallography facility which includes two small-molecule diffractometers and a Macromolecular system. Dr. Neal Stolowich manages our Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) instrumentation. These include one new NMR spectrometer (9.4 Tesla, 400 MHz), and two spectrometers operating at 11.7 T (500 MHz). One of these 500 MHz spectrometers will soon be replaced with a 16.4 T, 700 MHz system. In addition, we have a shared facility with the Brown Cancer Center that houses an 18.8 T, 800 MHz spectrometer. Dr. Bogdan Bogdanov manages the CREAM Mass Spectrometry facility, which include a Fourier Transform-Ion Cyclotron Resonance-Mass Spectrometer (FT-ICR-MS) and an Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS). The department also operates a Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer (MALDI-TOF).
