Schmuck Protein NMR

Biomolecular NMR Centre

The Biomolecular NMR Centre of ICS-6 and the Institute of Physical Biology at the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf , with its high field NMR spectrometers for fluid and solid state NMR spectroscopy, offers excellent opportunities for research into structural biology on biologically and medically-relevant proteins, such as the identification of high-resolution, three-dimensional structures.

Serving science, side by side

Our administrative staff provides advice and support in all matters concerning personnel, order processing, public relations and much more. Our engineers and mechanics work closely with scientists; our programmers and IT specialists offer technical advice, develop device drivers and control software as well as imaging techniques for real-time simulations.  ICS-1, -2, and -3 are all supported by the Technical Services and Administration department PGI/JCNS-TA.

Softcomp started out as a Network of Excellence (NoE), supported by the EU with the aim of creating a sound knowledge base for the intelligent design of functional composite soft matter materials on the nanoscale.



ESMI (European Soft Matter Infrastructure), the European infrastructure project for soft matter, is coordinated by ICS-3.
