NMR Dynamics Workshop 6-7 June 2023 in Leicester

Learning outcomes

At the completion of this workshop, the student:

  • will understand the theory, and have practical experience in acquiring NMR relaxation experiments.
  • will be able to process and analyse the NMR relaxation experiments.
  • understands the steps and outcomes of dynamics analysis.
  • can use CcpNmr AnalysisAssign for the various data analysis steps.


Tuesday 6th June, 1 pm – 5:30 pm

Lecture – Practical aspects of collecting NMR relaxation data
Practical – Instrument set-up and data acquisition
Lecture – Theory of NMR dynamics
End of formal day ~5:30 pm

Wednesday 7th June, 9 am – 1 pm

Workshop – Data processing:

  • Topspin (brief)
  • NMRPipe (extensive)

Workshop – CcpNmr Analysis Dynamics Module:

  • Loading data and assignment transfer
  • Extracting R1, R2 and heteronuclear-NOE relaxation parameters Analysis using reduced spectral density mapping
  • Tools to review NMR relaxation data

End of formal day ~1 pm

Participant Profile

The course is aimed at 1st/2nd year PhD students or equivalent, who plan to use NMR spectroscopy to study biological systems, or post-doctoral researchers wishing to expand their skills/knowledge of structural biology. We envisage that those attending should have a basic knowledge of NMR spectroscopy and should be able to set up, acquire and process a 1H-15N-HSQC independently.


We can recommend the University run College Court hotel for which we may be able to obtain reduced rates. This is located a pleasant 25 minute walk away from the Henry Wellcome Building on Lancaster Road where the course will be held – contact us at support@ccpn.ac.uk once you have registered and we can help arrange this. Alternatively, the Premier Inn Leicester City Centre and ibis Leicester City hotels are both close to the station and an easy 15 minute walk away from the University.

Registration and Funding

Please use the registration form below to apply to take part in the workshop. Due to the hands-on nature of the course, places are limited to eight.

This workshop is aimed primarily at UK-based applicants who are therefore eligible to apply for a Connect NMR UK Training Mobility Grant to help pay for their travel and accommodation.
