Description

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a key technology for research in the modern Life Sciences, with an increasing impact on human health. This technology is unique in new areas of molecular systems biology providing detailed insight into protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions.

Europe has traditionally enjoyed a leadership role in NMR, but to maintain this position in the face of increasing international competition, scientific and technological capabilities throughout the EU must be fully exploited.

The EAST-NMR project responds to exactly this challenge. The project which is funded under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) connects 21 partners and is coordinated by the Johan Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt. It provides access for scientist all over the world to NMR facilities stationed in Eastern Europe. It therefore relies on experiences made during another EU projects (EU-NMR). Furthermore, scientists from Eastern Europe are trained and educated with regard to the potential and use of NMR technology. Also, the project aims to make further progress in the sample preparation technologies especially of difficult to tackle membrane proteins through joint research activities.
