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). 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. For more see the BMRZ-Film.
Part of our research is also shown in a German science TV-show: Magie der Proteinfaltung

Techniques available:

  • several high-field liquid-state NMR (up to 950 MHz)
  • high-field widebore solid-state NMR (up to 850 MHz)
  • large range of EPR spectrometers (from X-band to J-band)
  • a liquid-state and a solid-state NMR DNP setup
  • an advanced Linux cluster
  • all required molecular biology, biochemistry and also chemical synthesis are carried out in house

Scientific community:


Currently BMRZ has seven independent PI’s and two associated groups, see BMRZ-members.
