State-of-the-art instrumentation to examine the structure, dynamics, and function of biologically important macromolecules



Sunday, October 28, 2018, marked the end of an era at MSU. On that day, the 900 MHz NMR instrument was officially retired after 13 years of operation and 10,000+ experiments. As the Max T. Rogers NMR Facility director, it was my pleasure to look after this incredible instrument for the last 9 years and play a small role in the many discoveries it enabled. The 900 MHz spectrometer provided MSU and other scientific communities throughout Michigan and the world with excellent, unparalleled NMR data and capabilities. At the time of its installation, it was arguably the most advanced NMR spectrometer in the world and remained a superb resource throughout its career. From nanoparticles to sea lamprey pheromones to unlocking the mysteries of aromaticity-modulated hydrogen bonds, the 900 made invaluable contributions to scientific discovery.
