Learn to run NMR experiments on state-of-the-art instrumentation in the Minnesota NMR Center, gaining hands on experience with high field spectrometers. Whether considering NMR as a research tool in your lab, or would like to learn more about the technique in general, these workshops and courses address practical aspects of experimental NMR and provide valuable experience.
Practical NMR Workshop
MNMR offers workshops in the practical aspects of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Attendees will gain hands-on experience operating high-field NMR spectrometers, as well as training in basic NMR theory, sample preparation, experiment selection and optimization and data processing. The typical schedule for a 3-day workshop is as follows:
Day 1– MNMR Intro and Policies, NMR Basics, 1D acquisition and 1D data processing
Day 2 – 1D optimization, Homonuclear 2D NMR and 2D data processing
Day 3 – Heteronuclear 2D NMR, special topics
4-day workshops (often held concurrently with credit courses) cover the same material in greater depth and with more time on the spectrometers, and typically include an introduction to advanced topics, depending on the interests of the attendees. Advanced topics may include, but are not limited to, protein structure and dynamics, metabolomics, solid-state NMR, high-throughput screening.
Completion of the workshop fulfills the requirements to gain access to MNMR.
Cost (for non-credit attendees): $450
