He had an MSc in NMR from the Chemistry Department at UBC.
This explanation belied the fact that Lauterbur was one of the foremost specialists in NMR spectroscopy.
NMR is also used in the pharmaceuticals industry to determine the structure, and hence the properties, of proteins and other macromolecules that can be interesting target molecules for new pharmaceuticals.
A particular strength of NMR is its ability to demonstrate unstructured and very mobile parts of a molecule.
The perhaps most important industrial use of NMR is in the search for small potential pharmaceutical molecules that can interact with a given biological macromolecule.
NMR is used in the pharmaceutical industry for determining the structure of proteins and other macromolecules that can be of interest as target molecules for new drugs.
One of the fine points of NMR is that it enables us to see individual signals, for example, from each hydrogen nucleus in a molecule.
NMR is one of the chemist's best methods for examining molecules, and it has been used extensively for small molecules since the mid-20th century.
The advantage of NMR is that proteins can be studied in solution, i.e. an environment similar to that in the living cell.
A later revolutionary development in NMR, in which this year's Chemistry Laureate played a leading role, was the introduction of more than one frequency dimension, 2, 3 or higher.
