Chianti Workshop

"Opening New Doors for Magnetic Resonance"

Principina Terra (Grosseto), Italy

19-24 June, 2022

The tradition of the Chianti Workshops is based on relaxation and in particular on the presence of unpaired electrons. This edition will focus in particular on recent methodological achievements in magnetic resonances and the new doors that these technologies can open in chemistry, in life sciences and in material science.


timb3 hands-on workshop

"NMR of paramagnetic proteins and applications"

7th - 8th April 2022

 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 10 participants will be considered


NMR Training School  "Fundamentals of magnetic resonance spectroscopies and metal trafficking"

CERM is organizing a Training School, entitled “Fundamentals of magnetic resonance spectroscopies and metal trafficking”. The School will involve some of the most distinguished worldwide scientists in the above fields.

It will be organized in two separate days, scheduled on October 22nd and October 29th and will take place in the form of a virtual meeting.

The Training School will cover methodological and applied aspects of NMR, EPR and bioinformatics, with a specific focus on metalloproteins.

Registration is free of charge. The school is open to PhD students, postdocs and Early Career Investigators.

"Biophysical Society Virtual Networking Event"

September 25th, 2020

"Magnetic Resonance meets the future of biophysics"

Volantino BPS
Magnetic Resonances are highly developed, non-invasive techniques that can be used to study soft and hard matter at the atomic and molecular scale. Therefore, MR plays a central role in modern biophysics. 
 With this event, we aim at advertising MR to the audience of biophysicists, giving clear-cut examples of what MR can do on its own and in integration with other biophysical techniques, and demonstrating that it can be easily approached and handy! 
- Laura Castanar Acedo (Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw Research Fellow, Manchester NMR Methodology group)
