The Power of NMR

The PharmNMR Center is a catalyst for improving access to large-scale scientific instruments for the University and the Commonwealth. We work with researchers throughout the community to offer supervised access to analyze small molecules and small peptides to further advance scientific research.

The Center is a multiuser facility located in the basement of the College of Pharmacy building (Room B003). The mission of the UK PharmNMR Center is to enhance the research infrastructure available to researchers of the University of Kentucky and of the entire Commonwealth, as well as to external users, and to provide an environment for superior education and research that nurtures, sustains, and pushes research boundaries.

Training & Workshops

A graduate-level academic course in NMR of small and biological molecules is offered during the Spring semester every year. The course is taught by the UK PharmNMR Center Director Dr. Vivek Subramanian.


Upcoming Events

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
