Scripps Florida receives NIH grant
August 2017
SHARING OPTIONS:

JUPITER, Fla.—The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have awarded a $600,000 grant to the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) facility at the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute, which TSRI plans to use to purchase a 600 Mhz NMR machine. The Florida campus houses three NMR machines at the moment, not counting the new unit that will join the ranks. These machines help with drug development, as NMR applies a strong magnetic field to samples that interacts with individual atoms, enabling the identification of a molecule’s structure. The newest NMR is expected to be able to support all types of research, combining many capabilities from the machines with higher and lower fields. According to TSRI associate professor Douglas Kojetin, project leader on the grant, this new unit will help accelerate more than 20 NIH-funded projects currently underway at TSRI.
