SBNet Lecturer 1999

It is a great pleasure to announce that Dr. Ad Bax (NIDDK/NIH) will be the first SBNet Lecturer. Dr. Bax (brief c.v., list of publications) has been invited to become the first SBNet Lecturer because of his outstanding contributions to the field of NMR spectroscopy that have had an enormous impact on structural biology (inter alia). In addition, Dr. Bax is the world's most-cited chemist for the period 1981-1997 (although he did his PhD in the physics department of Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands).

A set of photos taken during Dr Bax' trip through Sweden is available.

The itinerary for Dr. Bax' trip is shown below. Unless stated otherwise all seminars will be open to all interested ! The talk entitled "What can NMR tell us about a protein ?" is suitable for a general audience, whereas the other ones are more suitable for expert NMR spectroscopists.
