The Magnetic Resonance Research CentreThe MRRC

The Magnetic Resonance Research Centre (MRRC) was built in 1997 and is located on the West Cambridge Site near the Cavendish Laboratories. The initial aim of the MRRC was to act as a focus for academic and industrial chemical engineers throughout the United Kingdom who wish to apply NMR imaging techniques in their research. Its role has now expanded to include collaborations with chemistry and biology research groups as well.

The centre currently houses four Bruker NMR spectrometers - MSL 200, SWB DMX 200, WB DMX 300 and a WB AV 400 - which were purchased using grants from EPSRC and industrial sponsors. We have also acquired a Bruker AV 85 (horizontal bore) spectrometer from a collaboration with Schlumberger. The MRRC is under the direction of Prof. Lynn Gladden and is managed by Dr Mick Mantle.
