NMR Day Scientific Symposium
Thursday, May 17, 2018


The Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR) invites you to participate in the 7th Biennial NMR Day Symposium on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at our facility in Rockville, Maryland.

IBBR hosts a biennial meeting, designed to promote discussion and collaboration among scientists active in the application of biomolecular NMR to modern problems in structural biology and biotechnology. The symposium speakers are internationally recognized in the application of NMR to biological systems.
