The NMR Discussion Group has organized this two-day meeting, starting after lunch on Thursday April 10th 2014, and finishing mid-afternoon on the following day. The programme will cover a selection of the areas in structural biology where NMR is currently making significant contributions. In addition, there will be two lectures covering cognate areas which we feel will be of interest to the NMR community.

Ad Bax (NIH, Bethesda) and Gerhard Wagner (Harvard) will head our speakers list, with other contributions drawn from well-known scientists around Europe.  There will be a poster session, and some slots in the lecture program will be reserved for promoted posters to give opportunities for more junior colleagues to speak.

The programme is now available to view: click on the "Programme" link

Full registration is 50, and student/retired registration is 25.  Students can apply to the NMRDG for a bursary to offset their other costs (see the link to the left).  Overnight accommodation (including breakfast) will be available in the nearby St Catharine's or Downing Colleges, and all of the scientific sessions will be held in the Department of Chemistry.

Arriving at the conference

For local travel arrangements see the link Travelling to Cambridge.  Here is link to a local map on which the key locations are highlighted

The registration desk will be open at the Department of Chemistry from 10:00 on Thursday 10th April (a bag drop will be available at the Dept. of Chemistry on both days of the meeting).  Please use the entrance which faces onto the Scott Polar Institute.  Those presenting posters will be able to mount them from 10:00 onwards.

Those staying at Downing or St Catharine's Colleges should go to the Porters' Lodge of the appropriate college (see map) to collect their room keys.  However, these will not be available until 14:00 on the day of arrival (a bag drop will be available at the Dept. of Chemistry on both days of the meeting).  Those with car parking spaces reserved at Downing College should drive into the main gate by the Porters' Lodge on Regent St (see map, post code CB2 1DQ) and give their name to the porter, who will direct them to the car park.

The scientific session will commence at 13:25 on Thursday.  Please be seated in the Bristol Meyers Squibb Lecture Theatre, Dept. of Chemistry, by that time.  Please use the entrance to the Department which faces onto the Scott Polar Institute.
