Scientific Capabilities

We focus on helping you solve problems by providing an unparalleled integration of experts, facilities and instrumentation. Our goal is to team with you to understand the problem you're trying to solve and offer innovative ways to address it.

We collaborate with early career scientists who haven't yet built up the arsenal of instruments needed to address major challenges and who can benefit from using a variety of our instruments. And we work closely with established scientists who may have their own collection of NMRs, for example, but could benefit from integrating with our computational capabilities or other instrumentation.

EMSL's capabilities are available to researchers through a peer-reviewed proposal process, typically at no cost, if research results are published in the open literature (see Proposal Opportunities). Remote access to EMSL's supercomputer, called Cascade, and NMR resources is also available to help EMSL users save time and travel costs. Have questions on how to collaborate with us? Check out "Working With Us."

We invite you to search through a filtered list of "All Instruments" or individual capabilities. If you're uncertain which instrument would be best for your project, you can search by research area to view a list of commonly used instruments. If you can't find what you're looking for, please contact our leadership.
