This overview is designed to guide you in the procedures that you should follow in order to access
the resources of the NMR facility.
1. If you are new to NMR and are not familiar with the technology, please consult the
different topics on the Getting Started Page. This should give
you an idea of the kinds of systems that can be studied by NMR and the kind of information that NMR can provide. These pages
should also give you a basic idea of the different NMR methodologies and the time that would likely be required to complete
2. If you are interested in pursuing a new project, consult the NMR Facility Director
to discuss experimental approaches and develop an experimental plan.
3. If you have an idea of what you want to do, but need some technical advice in terms of
preparing samples (either general considerations such as buffer composition, volumes, concentrations, tubes, etc or
methods for preparation of isotope labeled protein by recombinant expression in E. coli), please consult the
sample preparation section of our Technical Resources page.
4. If you are ready to schedule time on one of the NMR spectrometers, fill out an Acceptance-of-Use Form if
you haven't already done so (note - this only needs to be filled out once per fiscal year).
5. If you have filled out the Acceptance-of-Use Form, or already have an up-to-date form on file, you can go ahead and
schedule the needed amount of time by visiting the scheduling page.
6. If you have scheduled time, bring your sample to the NMR facility
on the 5th floor of the Research Administration Bldg on the UTHSCSA Greehey Campus
(Room 5.420 for AV700, Room 5.414 for AV500 & AV600) on the date/time of your scheduled run.
