[NMR] Ampere Biological Solid-State NMR School

AMPERE Biological Solid-State NMR School

Online Phase: January 13, 2021 – May 26, 2021

Combined Attendance/Online Week:

Berlin, 14.06. -18.06.2021

MDC.C, AXON 1, Robert-Rössle-Str. 10, 13125 Berlin

Dear biological solid-state NMR enthusiast, we will have our biannual Ampere Biological Solid-State NMR School again in 2021! It will be a bipartite course, with an online school of basics from January to May 2021, and a scientific get-together in June 2021. Registration for combined virtual and real event is 40 €, including AMPERE membership. Depending on the situation, the workshop in Berlin will be held under distance-enforcing conditions and participant attendance may be limited to 40 persons. The workshop is geared towards the exchange of experience and nitty-gritty experimental details as well as for networking among PhD students and postdocs. The lectures will be transmitted for those who cannot travel. Students are strongly encouraged to present a poster, but it is of course not required for participation since the course is also designed for newcomers in biological solid-state NMR.

The program features introductory lectures twice a month on Wednesdays from 15:00 to 16:00. There will be a 60 minutes presentation and 15 minutes for the discussion/question session, as well as exercises supplied. Afterwards virtual poster presentations of two participants will take place, 10 mins presentation, 10 mins discussion. In the following week, the exercises on the topic of the lecture will be discussed, again on Wednesdays, 15:00, and solutions presented.

All attendees agree to join the conference dinner on Wednesday, June 16, either in person or via the web. Tables will be arranged outdoors in Berlin and online.


Please send an email to: steuer@fmp-berlin.de . This should include the full name, affiliation (full address) and in case you would like to present a poster, send the title. You will receive a request for payment after confirmation of registration. Places are limited.
