Interdisciplinary chemical biology research projects (Research) are supported by the outstanding facilities at UW-Madison. High field NMR spectrometers (600 and 500 MHz) equipped with sophisticated triple resonance and magic angle spinning probes are housed in the Chemistry Department. Along with the other excellent instrumentation located within the Department, the recent addition of the Keck Center for Chemical Genomics to the UW campus provides additional state of- the-art instrumentation that will fuel research at the chemistry-biology interface for years to come. The Keck Center, which has a facility located in the Chemistry Department, serves to integrate chemical synthesis and surface science for the investigation of biological systems. The Center includes equipment for high throughput screening (liquid handling robotics, plate readers, etc), for the automated chemical synthesis of small molecule libraries, and for the fabrication and characterization of surfaces (atomic force microscopy, surface plasmon resonance etc).
Additionally, UW-Madison is home to a National Magnetic Resonance Facility (NMRFAM), which houses 900, 800, 750, 600 (3), 500 (2), and 400 MHz NMR spectrometers, along with the BioMag-ResBank (BMRB), which is the worldwide repository for data from NMR spectroscopy on proteins, peptides, and nucleic acids. Finally, open access to state-of-the-art facilities at the Biophysics Instrumentation Facility (located nearby in the Biochemistry Department), the Biotechnology Center, and School of Pharmacy, coupled with exceptional campus- wide bioinformatics and computational capabilities, creates a world class environment to engage in research at the chemistry-biology interface.
