Molecular Modeling Facility
The Molecular Modeling Facility provides the modern modeling software suites on Windows and Linux platforms and technical assistance in performing QSAR, Protein receptor ligand docking, Virtual screening, Cheminformatics, Molecular Dynamics and
other functions as required for drug discovery This facility will be instrumental in assisting with the research conducted in the newly proposed FAMU-RCMI Cancer and Neuroscience Cores
The NMR Facility provides instrumentation and technical assistance for obtaining NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) spectra for liquid samples. This facility supports the drug discovery research and other chemical, biochemical researches to monitor chemical reactions, identify / elucidate chemical structures, and to determine purity of synthetic products. This facility also provides basic training for graduate students and undergraduate students both in the college of pharmacy and in the chemistry department on how to use the instrument to meet their research / experimental needs, as well as the requirements for medicinal chemistry or organic chemistry courses.
"The CombiFlash Rf uses RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology to automate setting the parameters for purification runs and fraction collection.
The CombiFlash Rf has built-in solvent and waste management that prevent columns from drying, and messy waste overfills. A new automated valve lets you load samples and walk away – and it's self-cleaning to wash away materials that can contaminate the next run.
The CombiFlash Rf improves your productivity whether you separate synthetic compounds, natural products, peptides, polymers, or other chemical separations."
Run liquid sample for H and C spectrum.
