Established in 2010, the Jean Jeener NMR Centre (JJNC) houses state-of-the-art 600 MHz and 800 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers dedicated to structural biology work. NMR spectroscopy allows visualization of biomolecular structure and dynamics in solution and is complementary to other established structural techniques such as X-ray crystallography and electron microscopy. 

Research areas

Structural biology

Research focus

The main strength of the JJNC is characterization of protein-based biomolecular interactions, including protein-protein, protein-DNA, and protein-small molecule complexes. We routinely tackle versatile research questions – ranging from establishing the structures of proteins and their complexes, to describing the molecular motions underlying the biomolecular function – and provide service both to the academia and the industry. The Jean Jeener NMR Centre is embedded in the VIB-VUB Center for Structural Biology.
