The CCRC occupies an 140,000 sq.ft. building specifically designed for the interdisciplinary and equipment-intensive nature of carbohydrate science.

The CCRC is organized to optimize cooperation and collaboration among disciplines (biomedical, plant and microbial glycosciences, synthetic and analytical chemistry) both within the CCRC and with scientists world-wide and to foster analytical service and training.

The CCRC NMR facility

The CCRC NMR facility has three high-field NMR spectrometers (500 and two 600-MHz), fully equipped for biomolecular studies of liquids and solids (500 only). In addition, the Georgia Research Alliance (GRA)- University of Georgia 800-MHz NMR spectrometer is located in the CCRC and is a regional resource for high-field NMR studies of biological macromolecules. The CCRC was one of the first institutions world-wide to receive a Varian Unity Inova 900-MHz spectrometer funded by the NIH and GRA.

The Mass Spectrometry facility houses:

  • 8 Agilent GC-MS with EI source
  • 1 Waters Synapse Q-TOF Ion Mobility with ETD
