Minnesota NMR (MNMR) Center
Summer 2013 Protein NMR Workshop
The Minnesota NMR Center is offering a "hands-on" NMR workshop with an emphasis on protein structure determination. Graduate students and postdoctoral associates will familiarize themselves with state-of-the-art multidimensional techniques in solution NMR spectroscopy. They will learn how to set up multidimensional NMR experiments on our spectrometers, interpret protein NMR spectra, calculate the three-dimensional structure using computational methods, and assess the quality of the structures generated. Although not necessary, a basic knowledge of NMR is preferable. Lectures will be given by professors and NMR staff at the University of Minnesota as well as guest speakers from other institutions.
The Minnesota NMR Center is a core resource whose mission is to make state-of-the-art NMR instruments available to researchers, providing a venue for them to pursue their projects and develop their experience in NMR methods.
The center is home to eight superconducting magnets ranging in field strength from 600MHz to 900MHz. The instruments are equipped with a full range of probes for solution and solid-state NMR.
Articles from the move
The new Minnesota Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Facility received three new high-powered magnets that will further biomedical research at the University of Minnesota. These magnets will help advance research done to fight HIV, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. Additional information can be found at AHC or a News Story.
In addition to the instruments above, the center partners with the Center for Drug Design, Department of Medicinal Chemistry, and Institute of Therapeutic Discovery and Development to provide maintenance and expertise for NMR instruments located in their laboratories.
