[NMR] Dr. Ieva Goldberga | 10th DNP/NMR Educational Tutorial on July 10

Dear NMR Enthusiast,

The 10th Educational Tutorial will be given by Dr. Ieva Goldberga, a postdoc in Prof. Danielle Laurencin’s lab at University of Montpellier on the topic:

“Relaxation-assisted spectral editing in solid-state NMR spectroscopy of biological materials”.

Abstract:

Relaxation analysis in heterogeneous systems can be complicated due to overlapping resonances. In this tutorial, we will consider the use of the inverse Laplace transform to process biexponential relaxation decays to extract information from complex unresolved spectra. The first part will cover ILT and its use in NMR spectroscopy; the second part will consider this methodology in biological materials: collagen and bone.

Speaker’s biography:

2015: MChem, University of Southampton (Dr. Marina Carravetta) 

2020: PhD Chemistry, University of Cambridge (Prof. Melinda J. Duer) 

2019- present: Postdoc at University of Montpellier (Dr. Danielle Laurencin)

Here are the webinar details:

Time: Friday, July 10, 2020, 08:30 AM California or 5:30 PM Paris or 9:00 PM Delhi

Tutorial lecture: “What exactly is spin”

Spin is a relativistic invariant that gives magnetic moments to charged particles. This tutorial lecture will focus on the fundamental question of how it comes to exist. We will cover the history of the subject, starting with the spin-orbit coupling in… astronomy, and then proceed to the modern derivation and definition of spin: from the theory of continuous groups, through Lorentz invariance, to Dirac equation and finally to the emergence of the coupling between spin and magnetic field when the negative energy components of the spinor are eliminated. The mathematics will be tuned to resonate with the NMR/EPR/DNP community.

[NMR] ssNMR and DNP Educative Tutorials, First one on May 8 #DNPNMR

Dear NMR Enthusiast,

We all know that being a research student in this unusual, COVID-19 affected, time period is stressful and a source of a lot of uncertainty. Apart, from working from home and not being able to go to the lab to continue our experiments, a very important drawback is our inability to learn through fruitful discussions, share our research, talk about what we are passionate about with our colleagues, and meet with new and old friends, since a lot of the conferences we like to be part of are either cancelled or postponed until further notice.

Therefore, following similar initiatives, we would like to propose some (bi)weekly Educative Tutorials about basic concepts of NMR with some flavors of latest research, which will be held online via ZOOM, and their purpose will be to give the opportunity to young scientists to learn, to ask their questions, and to have a constructive dialog with their fellow NMR spectroscopists. For the moment, the tutorials will be focused on ssNMR and DNP.

Our first speaker will be Dr. Monu Kaushik, who is currently a post-doctoral researcher in Prof. Anne Lesage’s lab at CRMN Lyon. Monu will talk about fundamentals of DNP and recent developments. The current format of the presentation will consist of a 40 minutes talk which will include both basic and advanced material and 20 minutes of discussion.

We hope that in the future more or you would be willing to be a part of this initiative so please do not hesitate to contact us in order to present your favorite topic. Also, we would really appreciate it if you forward this email to any of your colleagues and NMR friends that might be interested. 

A full list of the topics covered will be shared with you shortly.

Details about the ZOOM link and time:

Topic: Global NMR Discussion Zoom-Meeting

Time: Friday, May 8, 2020, 08:30 AM California time or 5:30 PM Paris time

Password: 094324

Since, this is a nascent idea at the moment, we would be happy to receive any suggestions and feedback on the amount of talks given per session, the duration of the talks, and topics that you would be interested in hearing about in the future.
