Announcing the first BioNMR Symposium hosted by the Oregon State University NMR Facility and the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, held on August 4th, 2017. The theme of the symposium is Learning how NMR Illuminates Biology and will primarily target molecular, cellular, and chemical biologists interested in learning how NMR can answer important questions related to their specific research. Internationally recognized speakers will highlight NMR applications in multiple diverse systems. No prior knowledge or experience in NMR is required, but there will be ample opportunities at the symposium for networking and initiating collaborations. The registration deadline is July 21st, 2017.
Please pass along this information to your students, postdocs and staff. Students registered by July 14th will be considered for a travel stipend.
David Wemmer, Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Central California 900 MHz NMR Facility, UC Berkeley; Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Aggregation and Disease
Richard Kriwacki, St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Intrinsically disordered proteins and Phase Separation
Valérie Copié, Professor and Director of the MSU NMR Center, Montana State University. NMR Metabolomics Approaches
Rachel Klevit, Professor of Biochemistry, University of Washington. BRCA1 and Cancer
Dorothee Kern, Professor of Biochemistry and HHMI Investigator, Brandeis University. Evolution of Protein Dynamics
Clemens Anklin, Vice President of Applications, Bruker Corporation. 19F NMR in Drug Discovery
Michael Chapman, R.T. Jones Professor of Structural Biology & Chair, Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Oregon Health Sciences University. Protein Dynamics
The symposium will also feature a poster session, speaking opportunities for students and post-docs and a career session. Posters do not have to include NMR data, but should present problems that that may benefit from NMR applications. For those able to arrive by the afternoon of Aug 3rd, workshops on metabolomics and protein dynamics will be offered with no additional fee from 4 pm to 7 pm. The day of the event, Aug 4th, will start at 8 AM with scientific talks and end with a dinner at Tyee Winery and entertainment provided by a local band, The Svens, till 10 PM. Symposium registration is $30 for students and post-docs, $50 for PI’s and other attendees, and includes coffee breaks, lunch and dinner.
A limited number of Norell sponsored student travel stipends are available. For more information about the program, or to register for the symposium, please visit our website at https://nmr.science.oregonstate.edu/stories/inaugural-bionmr-symposium.
