History and aims of the centre
The CFNMR Centre was established in 2006 with SRIF2 funding as part of a £5.2 million package allocated by Imperial College London for state-of-the-art upgrading of analytical facilities within the Division of Molecular Biosciences, Department of Chemistry and Department of Biomolecular Medicine. The versatility of NMR has resulted in its application in a diverse range of research and the centre was set up with the goals of:
- Promoting cross-faculty interaction and collaboration.
- Supporting and extending Imperial's outstanding international reputation in the field of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy.
- Cost efficiency through the sharing of common resources.
The centre was formally opened by the then Rector of the college, Sir Richard Sykes, in September 2006.
