Solid-State NMR School, Palma de Mallorca October 21-26, 2018

Every second year, the subdivision for biological solid-state NMR of AMPERE organizes an advanced school on biological solid-state NMR. The 7th edition of the school will take place at the Universitat de les Illes Balears, Palma de Mallorca, Spain from October 21-26, 2018. Palma de Mallorca is well connected to most places in Europe with cheap flights and budget accommodation outside the main tourist season.


The School is aimed at advanced students who have a good knowledge of the basics of solid-state NMR. The School has the purpose of teaching the students a broad range of topics required to understand the modern solid-state NMR experiments which are used in biological applications: Hamiltonians in NMR, isotropic and anisotropic interactions, tensor description of NMR, spherical tensors and tensor rotations, time-dependent Hamiltonians, average Hamiltonian and Floquet theory, principles of recoupling and decoupling under MAS, spin- dynamic simulations using SIMPSON, basic principles and applications of MAS DNP, EPR and paramagnetic NMR, characterization of dynamic processes, protocols for the assignment of protein spectra and protein structure determination, the basics of solid-state NMR instrumentation as well as sample preparation and isotope-labelling techniques.


Registration will start in March and more details are available through the website of the school at .


Best regards,


Anja Böckmann, Beat Meier, Hartmut Oschkinat, and Matthias Ernst
