The BMRZ is a technology and infrastructure centre at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It was founded in 2002 and is a research infrastructure facility for high-end nuclear (NMR) and electron magnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR). It is financially supported by the state of Hesse. The center is one of the European Large Scale Facilities for Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy. Our research is dedicated to the elucidation of structure and functional mechanism of biomolecules ranging from RNA and RNA-protein complexes via large soluble protein complexes to membrane proteins. BMRZ is led by a board of directors, has six independent PI's and three associated groups, see BMRZ-members. Access to external users is provided. Part of our research is introduced in a short film. Other aspects of our research were presented in a German TV show.
