Meeting Goals

The interaction meeting will focus on the state-of-the-art solid- and solution-state NMR methods to tackle challenging issues in biology. The talks will be mainly on the methods with potential applications and survey of the modern biology aspects. The progress made with NMR on biological system, like membrane proteins, will be highlighted. The meeting also will have several brain-storming sessions on the future prospects, with respect to the methods and systems. There will be only oral presenations at the meeting. The number of participants will be limited to 40.


The registration fee for attending the meeting is 200 euros for people from outside of India and Rs. 5000 for people from India.
