Labs

  • The UCSF NMR Lab provides a range of state-of-the-art NMR facilities that are available for use by qualified academic and outside researchers. Besides experiments to identify and determine the structure of small organic molecules, the high-field NMR spectrometers (ranging from 400 to 800 MHz for 1H NMR) are capable of protein and RNA structure determination. This is accomplished via heteronuclear (e.g., 1H, 13C, 15N, 31P) multi-dimensional NMR spectra, often using locally written and widely distributed software (e.g., Sparky, MARDIGRAS, CORMA) for data analysis.

  • The Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) is a part of the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco. Our primary mission is to support research labs at UCSF through the resources that we host, but other academic and biotechnology organizations are welcome to use our facility through prior arrangements.

  • The SMDC collaborates with academics, government labs, and pharma companies to develop unique chemical probes and drug leads, using high-throughput screening, high-content imaging, fragment discovery, and medicinal chemistry. Data is accessed via the web using a home-build platform called HiTS.

  • The Molecular Screening Shared Resource (MSSR) offers a comprehensive range of leading-edge high throughput screening (HTS) services including drug discovery, chemical and functional genomics, and novel methods for nano and environmental toxicology. The MSSR is an open access environment with investigators from UCLA as well as from the entire globe. Industrial clients are equally welcome as are non-profit entities.
