[NMR] HYP18 conference Sep 2-5 2018, Southampton UK #DNPNMR

The HYP18 conference on hyperpolarization in Southampton is now open for registration and abstract submission at

This conference will cover the main areas of nuclear hyperpolarization and some other methods for sensitivity enhancement in NMR and MRI, including:
  • dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP), both in solids and in solution
  • optical pumping 
  • quantum-rotor-induced polarization 
  • parahydrogen-induced polarization 
  • diamond magnetometry 
and key applications such as clinical imaging, materials science, and molecular structure determination. As far as we know, a meeting of this kind has not taken place before. It is a unique opportunity to hear the latest news from this exciting frontier.

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to encourage your students, postdocs, and senior associates to attend the 4th Winter School on Biomolecular Solid-State NMR, which will be held on January 10-15, 2016, in Stowe, Vermont. Similar to the three previous highly successful Winter Schools, this pedagogical meeting is aimed at students and postdocs in solid-state NMR as well as more senior scientists in related fields who are interested in entering this vibrant field. Our goals are to provide a focused week of teaching of the core concepts and practices in the increasingly multifaceted and complex field of biological solid-state NMR spectroscopy, and to encourage information sharing among different laboratories. Topics to be covered in the 4th Winter School include:

  • Basics of solid-state NMR: orientation-dependent NMR frequencies, MAS, tensors and rotations, density operator and its time evolution, dipolar recoupling, and average Hamiltonian theory.
  • Multidimensional correlation spectroscopy, resonance assignment and protein structure determination 
  • Theory of dipolar decoupling and polarization transfer
  • Pushing the sensitivity envelope: dynamic nuclear polarization and 1H detection
  • Effective “sensitivity enhancement” by non-uniform sampling
  • Solid-state NMR techniques for measuring molecular motion
  • Solid-state NMR techniques for measuring membrane protein orientation 
  • Beyond spin 1/2: NMR of quadrupolar nuclei 
  • Beating the 800-pound gorilla: NMR of membrane proteins 
  • XPLOR-NIH for structure calculation 

In addition to lectures, problem sets and their discussion sessions will be given at the meeting.

Speakers: The following people have agreed to give lectures:

Tim Cross (Florida State)

Philip Grandinetti (Ohio State)

Bob Griffin (MIT)

Stanley Opella (UC San Diego)

Bernd Reif (Tech Univ Munich)

David Roynyak (Bucknell)

Charles Schwieters (NIH)

Robert Tycko (NIH)

Venue and transportation: The meeting will be held at the beautiful and historical Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont. Stowe is accessible from airports in Burlington, VT, Manchester, NH, and Boston, MA. A block of rooms has been reserved at the TFL. We anticipate space for ~70 attendees.

Cost: Room and board will be free for attendees. The registration fee is $425 for academic attendees and $600 for industrial attendees. 

Application: Interested students and postdocs should send the following application material as a single PDF file to The application material includes 1) a CV, 2) publication list, and 3) a 1-page description of your current research and your statement of interest in attending the Winter School. Please indicate your gender in the CV for the purpose of hotel room assignment. Please name this application file as ProfessorLastName_YourLastName_WS2016app.pdf. For example, the filename can be  “Mueller_ Smith_WS2016app.pdf”.

Application deadline: Friday, Oct 30, 2015. Given the space limitation, applications received after the above date may not be possible to be accommodated. 

Please distribute this announcement to members of your research group as well as to colleagues who may be interested in attending or sending their group members.

9th Field-Cycling NMR conference, Aberdeen, 27-30 July 2015

From the Ampere Magnetic Resonance List

The 9th Conference on Fast Field-Cycling NMR Relaxometry will be held at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, from Monday 27th to Thursday 30th July, 2015.

This is the biennial Field-Cycling NMR conference, previously held in Berlin (1998) and then every two years in Torino until 2013. So it is the first move for the conference since 2001!

The conference covers all aspects of Fast Field-Cycling magnetic resonance, including theory, hardware, techniques, applications, relaxometry, imaging, as well as ultra-low field methods. Full details of the conference can be found at

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 8th May – just one week away! Please be sure to submit your abstract(s) on time, following the instructions on the conference web site.

Registration and accommodation booking and abstract submission are also open, on the web site.

Key dates:
Abstract submission deadline: 8th May
Registration deadline: 12th June
Accommodation deadline: 30th June

Low-price on-site accommodation in en-suite rooms is available, via the conference web site. Participants are advised to book accommodation early in order to be sure of securing a room.

Please note that, due to the prevalence of the local oil industry, hotel rooms in Aberdeen are scarce, and they are much more expensive than the on-site rooms.

The conference will be held in the state-of-the-art King’s Conference Centre, at the historic heart of the University of Aberdeen’s main campus. It will be hosted by the FFC-MRI research group.

I hope to see you in Aberdeen in July!

Dear Colleagues,

we are happy to announce that the next Summer School on Nuclear Spin Hyperpolarisation Techniques, organised within the EU-COST Framework (Action TD-1103), is now open for registration.

If interested, please register through the website:

The school will be held in an hotel within the beautiful Marwell Zoo and Wildlife Park nearby Southampton, UK. Social events include a Zoo Safari and a BBQ at the Zoo.

The main purpose of the school is to train the young generation of scientists (PhD’s and PostDocs) working in the field of magnetic resonance in novel methodologies for nuclear spin hyperpolarisation. For this purpose the school will discuss several hyperpolarisation techniques:

* Solid-State DNP

* dissolution-DNP

* Overhauser-DNP

* PHIP/SABRE (ParaHydrogen Induced Polarisation)

* CIDNP (Chemically induced DNP)

* QRIP (Quantum Rotor Induced Polarisation)

at 4 different levels: Theory, Simulations, Instrumentation and Applications.

The school is coordinated by Giuseppe Pileio (University of Southampton, UK) and Björn Corzilius (Goethe University Frankfurt, DE);

It boasts a rich list of top class teachers and scientists whose researches have contributed to estabilish the field of nuclear spin hyperpolarisation:

* Shimon Vega (Weizmann Institite, IL)

* Bob Griffin (MIT, Cambridge, US)

* Kevin Brindle (University of Cambridge, UK)

* Walter Kockenberger (University of Nottingham, UK)

* Ilya Kuprov (University of Southampton, UK)

* Jan-Henrik Arderkjaeren-Larsen (DTU Copenhagen, DK)

* Sami Jannin (EPFL, CH)

* Marina Bennati (MPI, Göttingen, DE)

* Marco Tessari (IMM, Nijmegen, NL)

N.B.: The school is open to PhD’s, PostDocs and early career scientists but we can allow only a total number of 30 participants. Places will be assigned on a first come first served base so please do not wait the last minute to register! People from countries enrolled in the COST Action are entitled to a fixed reimbursement of 500€.

Students grants are provided by EU-COST Action TD-1103. The Zoo Safari and the BBQ have been generously offered by Bruker. Oxford Instruments and Cortecnet have generously offered drinks for all dinners.

Looking forward to seeing you at the School,
