Three white Magnetic Resonance machines

Melbourne Magnetic Resonance (MMR) helps researchers analyse the structure, properties and interactions of molecules for pharmaceutical development, material sciences, and other biological and chemical applications.


Visit the platform


MMR offers a suite of nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers. This technology is useful for analysing potential new drugs and proteins that cannot  be crystallised. It can also be used to investigate interaction between molecules, including between proteins and specific ligands (including candidate drugs) or target membranes.

MMR is based in the Bio21 Institute and the School of Chemistry.
