Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Workshops


Learn to do nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) on state-of-the-art instrumentation in the Minnesota NMR Center. During this workshop you will gain hands on experience with 600 and 700 MHz spectrometers. Whether you are considering NMR as a research tool in your lab or just would like to learn more about NMR, these workshops addresses practical aspects of experimental NMR and provide valuable experience.

Practical NMR Workshop

Workshop Format

Lecture: Morning
Lab: Afternoon

Day 1:

General lab information, Intro to TopSpin and VnmrJ software, Basic 1D acquisition and processing.

Day 2:

1D Optimization and 2D NMR.

Day 3:

Special topics including: Biomolecules, Solid-state, Metabolomics, etc.

Advanced NMR Workshop

Advanced NMR Workshops offer advanced instruction in specific NMR applications. Our most recent advanced workshop covered protein NMR from data acquisition to structure determination. Offered over five days in a morning lecture, afternoon hands-on lab format, students gained valuable information and experience on the following topics:

 • Multi-dimensional experiment set-up
 • Interpretation of protein NMR spectra
 • Computational methods to calculate protein 3D structures
 • Measuring protein dynamics and interactions
