Consorzio Interuniversitario Risonanze Magnetiche di Metallo Proteine (CIRMMP)

Consorzio Interuniversitario Risonanze Magnetiche di Metallo Proteine CIRMMP is an institution financed by the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research, MIUR, by the European Commission, and by charitable organizations. EC has recognized CIRMMP as a Large Research Infrastructure in the field of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) since 1994 and provides funding for access to the NMR instruments. Since 2007 CIRMMP is one out of the 7 core labs of the European Research Infrastructure in Structural Biology (INSTRUCT; www.instruct-fp7.eu) that has been defined by the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructure (ESFRI). The research activity at CIRMMP encompasses bioinformatics, structural genomics and structural biology, drug design, advancements in NMR methodologies, relaxometry and metabolomics. The development of new computational tools for multivariate data analysis coming from metabolomics study is also an active research area.
CIRMMP hosts the “da Vinci European Biobank” (www.davincieuropeanbiobank.org), a research biobank that stores biological samples and associated clinical and biological data. Scientists of the biobank are actively working in developing optimal standard operating procedures for the collection, processing, transport and storage of biological samples for metabolomic analyses.
