Charalampos Babis Kalodimos, PhD, Structural Biology chair (left) and Youlin Xia, director of the Center for Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy, supervise delivery of the world’s largest superconducting magnet.

The 1.1 GHz nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer will enable scientists to look deeper into a cell than ever before. A million times stronger than the earth’s magnetic field, the 10-ton, $10 million magnet will help scientists understand health and disease at the molecular and atomic level.
