Advanced NMR Course
"Advanced NMR Spectroscopy"
An advanced course for training PhD students in different aspects of modern NMR for molecular and cellular studies of biomolecules and materials will be organized by the NMR centers of the universities of Utrecht, Nijmegen, Leiden, Wageningen and Eindhoven in collaboration with TI-Coast.
The course covers theoretical aspects, state-of-the-art methodology and applications. It is intended for PhD students, advanced undergraduate students and researchers, who already have a good knowledge of and practical experience with NMR spectroscopy.
The course will be given for 2 weeks and consists of lectures and practical sessions.
Dates and locations:
October 1-5, 2012 Bloembergen NMR building, Utrecht
October 8-12, 2012 Goudsmit Paviljoen for NMR, Nijmegen
Product operators. Anisotropic interactions. Dynamics. Relaxation theory. Pulse sequences building blocks for solution-state NMR, solid-state NMR and imaging. Diffusion and imaging techniques. Dynamic nuclear polarization. Biomolecular solution-state NMR. Biomolecular solid-state NMR. NMR of materials. Modeling and computation in NMR (molecular dynamics, docking, DFT). Industrial applications (metabolomics, drug discovery, materials).
The acquired knowledge will be directly applied in the practical sessions.
