The annual NMR Discussion Group Postgraduate Meeting is now an established event and the 8th meeting was hosted by the School of Chemistry, University of Manchester. As always, the meeting provided an ideal forum for early career research workers to present their work in an informal environment, either orally or as a poster. Established researchers, from both academia and industry, also attended the meeting as delegates. A diverse range of topics was presented, covering all magnetic resonance related disciplines, including small molecule characterisation, solid-state NMR, imaging and molecular biology.
To complement presentations given by early career research workers, overview lectures were delivered by Professor David Middleton (University of Lancaster) and Dr Mathias Nilsson (University of Manchester) on ‘Adventures in Biomolecular Design and Solid-State NMR’ and ‘Pure Shift NMR’ respectively. The meeting was sponsored by Thermo Scientific and the Royal Society of Chemistry, and prizes were awarded for the best oral and poster presentations. Judging was carried out by three independent members of the NMR Discussion Group Committee.
