Welcome to a symposium and the inauguration of world-unique combined solid-state NMR equipment (MAS CryoNMR Probe + Ultrafast MAS NMR Probe) for the next application level in sciences ranging from bio and medical sciences to novel material and environment.

The equipment is installed at the Umeå University KBC NMR core facility, a national SciLifeLab and VR-RFI (SwedNMR) node.


Chairs: Gerhard Gröbner and Jürgen Schleucher
Opening by Hans Adolfsson, Vice-Chancellor at Umeå University
