Jun 12 12:00 AM2013 ACERT WORKSHOP Pulse Dipolar ESR Spectroscopy (PDS) and Biomacromolecular Structure and Function: Instrumentation, Methods and ApplicationsLocation: Physical Sciences Building
ACERT's (Center for Advanced ESR Technology) workshop entitled “Pulse Dipolar ESR Spectroscopy (PDS) and Biomacromolecular Structure and Function: Instrumentation, Methods and Applications” will take place on June 12 - 14 at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA. For information regarding REGISTRATION, FEES, POSTER SUBMISSIONS, CONFERENCE HOTEL RATES, AND UPDATES about the workshop:SEE OUR WEBSITE AT: www.acert.cornell.eduOR USE this link: http://www.acert.cornell.edu/index_files/Workshop_2013_Announcement.phpOR TO DOWNLOAD the registration form: http://www.acert.cornell.edu/index_files/Workshops/2013/Workshop_Registration_Form.pdf The objective of the workshop is to describe and discuss the state-of-the-art of Pulse Dipolar ESR, especially in relation to protein structure and function. Topics will include a cross-section of pulse ESR instrumentation, techniques, methods, and applications. The workshop will include key lectures, discussions, and lab demonstrations given by leading specialists. The current plans are for 30 minute talks followed by 10 minutes of discussion for each talk. The talks will move from those emphasizing Instrumentation to those highlighting Methods and then to those stressing Applications. In addition, there will be round-table discussions as well as tours of our ACERT labs. Speakers: After the opening introductory lecture by Jack Freed (ACERT, Cornell University), the speakers include: Peter Hoefer (Bruker, Germany); Devin Edwards (FEL, UC Santa Barbara); Peter Borbat (ACERT); Yevhen Polyhach (ETH, Switzerland); Daniella Goldfarb (Weizmann Institute, Israel); Hassane Mchaourab (Vanderbilt University); Jeff Harmer (Oxford University/ University of Queensland, Australia); Olav Schiemann (Bonn University, Germany); David Cafiso (University of Virginia); Elka Georgieva (ACERT); Brian Crane (Cornell University). Who Should Attend: We envision that a typical attendee will include those interested in the potential of PULSE DIPOLAR ESR and its methodology and applications. This workshop is suited for graduate students, postdocs, and active researchers in ESR and/or Structural Biology who would benefit from learning what advantages the methods of PULSE DIPOLAR ESR SPECTROSCOPY can offer for their research.
