Workshops

Training

NMRFAM has a long history of providing workshops to train beginning users and non-experts in NMR data analysis. We are developing new content, including modern solution NMR data analysis, sample preparation, and hands-on training in solid-state NMR rotor packing, spectrometer setup and data acquisition.

 

Need-based financial assistance may be available to defray some of the costs to attend NMRFAM workshops.  If you wish to apply for assistance, please send your CV and a short statement of need to Lai Bergeman (lai.bergeman@wisc.edu)

Solid-State NMR Hands-On Workshop (Registration is now OPEN!)

Workshop Contents

This workshop will provide hands-on experience to beginning to intermediate solid-state NMR users, and is designed to complement the theoretical introduction to solid-state NMR provided by the Solid-State NMR Winter School (https://winterschool.mit.edu/). Topics include:

  • Hands on practice in packing and spinning rotors using rotor-packing devices, including both powder and sticky biological samples.
  • Hands on practice in probe configuration and tuning, of particular interest for materials science applications.
  • Hands-on practice in writing/modifying, compiling, and testing pulse sequences (Bruker Topspin).
  • Hands-on practice in experimental setup and data acquisition, including optimization of cross-polarization, decoupling, and other key parameters.

2022 Scheduling Information

Schedule and Important Dates

August – September, 2022 – Check our website for workshop dates, format, and registration information. Registration will be on first come, first serve basis. The cost of this workshop is $100.00.

Participant Requirements

Workshop participants are not expected to have prior experience with basic steps of NMR protein assignments. The workshop will cover the entire process and each session will build upon the previous sessions. Participants will be given the data necessary to complete each session.

Computer Requirements: In order to install VirtualBox, you MUST have administrative privileges on your computer. It is recommended that the computer have at least 4 GB of memory. The memory and bit size are not strict requirements, but the speed will suffer. The computer should have ~10 GB of free disk space. It is recommended that you have a (preferably 2-button with scroll wheel) mouse for your computer.

Next Year:
