The Barcelona Integrative Resonance Symposium took place in Barcelona on March 20 and 21, organized by the Scientific and Technological Centers of the Universitat de Barcelona (CCiTUB) and the Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC).
This symposium has brought together more than 150 researchers from research centers around the world to pool and share the possibilities that NMR instruments can bring to their research. It has also been a meeting point to present the three new instruments that have arrived at the Diagonal Campus of the University of Barcelona and that will consolidate Catalonia as a benchmark in magnetic resonance: a very high field NMR of 23.5T (1.0GHz) and a pulsed EPR-ENDOR, both from the CCiTUB, and a Hyperpolarization-MRI from the IBEC.
During the symposium, 23 internationally recognized researchers have presented their latest works, at the forefront of research, to illustrate the potential of these innovative techniques and hold an open debate with the attendees, dealing with topics as molecular magnetism, computing quantum, the NMR of biomolecules, among others.
The inauguration of the conference, which took place in the Antoni Caparrós Auditorium of the PCB, was given by the vice-rector for research of the University of Barcelona, Jordi García, the director of the Scientific and Technological Centers, Juan Fran Sangüesa and the professor of the University of Barcelona, Miquel Pons.
We remind you that the new Bruker Ascend Evo 1.0 GHz NMR is already working in the NMR laboratory of the CCiTUB and that it is one of the unique equipment of the ICTS R-LRB, the Biomolecular Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Laboratory Network. It will be open soon to the scientific community.
