The Workshop will focus on the application of paramagnetic NMR, 13C direct detection methods and on solution structures of metalloproteins.
Participants will be trained at the spectrometers, working with challenging systems such as proteins involved into the FeS cluster assembly machinery. They will acquire experience in the most recent NMR techniques specifically developed for paramagnetic metalloproteins and for 13C direct detection. Participants can bring their own samples.
The school is open to PhD students, postdocs and Early Career Investigators. A maximum number of 20 participants will be considered.
The registration fee is 80 euros. It includes the participation in all the sessions, coffee breaks, lunches, shuttle bus transfer from Hotel, participation to social activities between the days of the workshop. For participants attending also the Training Course “Fundamentals of magnetic resonance spectroscopies and metal trafficking” a comprehensive registration fee of 150 € is applied.
If you are a member of a laboratory affiliated with the TIMB3 Consortium you are eligible for support that will cover your registration and expenses. If you wish to apply for this support please submit a letter addressed to the course organizers indicating your current affiliation and outlining how your current research interests match the mission of the TIMB3 project, together with your application.
