Dr. Carlos Velazquez at the University of Alberta

Dr. Carlos Velazquez’s research group is actively engaged in the development of safe and effective cancer chemotherapeutic and chemopreventive agents. While queuing up for a 600 MHz NMR spectrometer in his department, students in Dr. Velazquez’s research group have the time-saving option of using a bench-top NMReady to analyze samples of starting materials and relatively simple products. Using the bench-top spectrometer, students usually know if they produced the target compound before the high field NMR is even ready for them to use.
