Magnetic Resonance Center of the University of Florence - CERM, Interuniversity consortium CIRMMP

The Centro Risonanze Magnetiche (CERM) is a center for research, knowledge transfer, and higher education of the University of Florence, located at the Polo Scientifico (Scientific Campus) in Sesto Fiorentino. CERM/CIRMMP is a research infrastructure for NMR in the Life Sciences supported by the European Community. The Consorzio Interuniversitario Risonanze Magnetiche di Metallo Proteine (CIRMMP) was founded in 1994 among the Universities of Florence, Siena and Bologna to develop and coordinate resources in the study of metalloproteins. CIRMMP manages and partially owns the instruments in CERM, one of the most well-equipped NMR laboratories in the world. CERM/CIRMMP hosts a number of laboratories, offices and common rooms over an area of 3,000 square meters. The flagship of the Center is the impressive collection of NMR spectrometers which feature the largest magnetic field range in the world (from 1.2 GHz to the earth field) and ranks it among the best equipped laboratories in the world. CERM/CIRMMP is located in the Scientific Campus (“Polo Scientifico”) of the University of Florence in Sesto Fiorentino, an area just west of the city of Florence. The campus borders Florence International Airport and yet is a mere 15 minutes from the centre of Florence, world-renowned cradle of renaissance art and culture. Its two-fold status as a public-private laboratory fosters interactions between private industry and public research institutions such as Universities, National Council of Research (CNR) Institutes and European counterparts, promoting synergistic activities such as collaborations and services to SMEs. CERM/CIRMMP is the Italian Instruct-ERIC Centre. Instruct-ERIC is the pan-European research infrastructure in structural biology, making high-end technologies and methods available to users. Instruct-ERIC became operational in 2012 and has grown through its R&D Pilot programme, to provide new services and training courses to support scientists. Instruct-ERIC will provide the stability and sustainability for Instruct services to the structural biology community and to the broader life sciences communities within Europe.
