Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a state-of-the-art technology to study the structural aspects of molecules. It had been a long sought fundamental facility for LUMS to boost research in diverse areas of science and is the latest example of Syed Babar Ali’s continued support for research and education at LUMS.
On January 31, 2018, Pro-Chancellor LUMS, Syed Babar Ali and members of the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE) Advisory Board inaugurated the establishment of the NMR facility housed at the Central Lab of SBASSE. This facility will help in improving the education standards and establishing research in areas of structural biology, drug discovery, vaccine development, metabolomics and synthetic chemistry.
The establishment of such a facility at SBASSE will significantly contribute towards the vision of LUMS to become an internationally acclaimed research university that serves society through excellence in education and research.
