    The 5th Winter School on Biomolecular Solid-State NMR will be held on January 7-12, 2018, in Stowe, Vermont. Similar to the four previous highly successful Winter Schools, this pedagogical meeting is aimed at students and postdocs in solid-state NMR as well as more senior scientists in related fields who are interested in entering this vibrant field. Our goals are to provide a focused week of teaching of the core concepts and practices in the increasingly multifaceted and complex field of biological solid-state NMR spectroscopy, and to encourage information sharing among different laboratories.
  • Basics of solid-state NMR: orientation-dependent NMR frequencies, MAS, tensors and rotations, density operator and its time evolution, decoupling and recoupling, and average Hamiltonian theory.
  • Multidimensional correlation spectroscopy, non-uniform sampling, techniques for resonance assignment and measurement of structural restraints in biomolecules
  • Paramagnetic solid-state NMR techniques
  • Techniques for enhancing sensitivity of solid-state NMR: dynamic nuclear polarization and 1H detection
  • Solid-state NMR techniques for measuring molecular motion
  • Solid-state NMR techniques for structural studies of oriented membrane proteins
  • Protein structure calculations in XPLOR-NIH
  • Beyond spin 1/2: NMR of quadrupolar nuclei
  • Basics of NMR probe design
