The third U.S.-Canada Winter School on Biomolecular Solid State NMR will be held in Stowe, Vermont, January 5-11, 2013. This is a pedagogical meeting, aimed primarily at graduate students and postdocs, with the goals of training them in fundamental conceptual and experimental aspects of biomolecular solid-state NMR, promoting frank discussions of current trends and bottlenecks, and generally catalyzing future progress. The meeting is also open to more senior scientists who are interested in entering the field of biomolecular solid state NMR.
The Winterschool was designed to be a pedagogical meeting aimed at students and postdoctorals in the field of biomolecular solid-state NMR, as well as more senior scientists who are interested in entering this field.
The primary goals of the school are:
- To foster the scientific development of the next generation of biomolecular solid state NMR spectroscopists.
- To introduce biomolecular solid-state NMR methods to senior scientists who are currently working in related fields.
- To encourage the sharing of information and the development of collaborative relationships among biomolecular solid-state NMR groups.
- To accelerate progress in the field.
- Fundamental conceptual basis for modern techniques in biomolecular solid-state NMR
- Practical aspects of solid-state NMR hardware and the implementation of solid-state NMR techniques
- Data analysis and numerical simulation methods
- Methods for the preparation of isotopically labeled peptides and proteins for solid-state NMR
