Resonance in Biology

A major meeting will take place in the College lecture theatre on September 13th (afternoon) and 14th (all day) on biological and medical applications of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.  NMR spectroscopy constitutes a fundamental approach for the study of the structure and dynamics of biological molecules and for drug discovery and the meeting will offer a comprehensive overview of recent advances across major areas of research. The meeting also constitutes a special occasion for celebrations of: 

(i) early and important contributions that the University of Pavia made to NMR spectroscopy through the work of Enrico Giulotto and Attilio Rigamonti. The latter will lecture at the meeting

(ii) the lifelong and major contributions to NMR spectroscopy by Pierandrea Temussi, the Italian scientist who pioneered biological applications of NMR in Italy and actively contributes, to this day, to the theoretical and experimental development of NMR spectroscopy. 

(iii) the recent arrival at Pavia of a high-field (700 MHz) NMR spectrometre, currently being installed at Centro Grandi Strumenti, an instrument that will enable scientists in Pavia to tackle a number of new research projects in the biomedical area, from structural and dynamic analysis of biological molecules to drug discovery.

All College students are warmly invited to participate in this evemt.  The poster of the meeting can be found here.  Furher information is available on a separate page. Participation is free but all participants are requested to register for attendance at this link.
