An IVAN Symposium on Benchtop NMR!

Saturday April 6th 2024 just before the 65th ENC

April 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Announcing the 2024 IVAN User Meeting on Saturday April 6th Just Before the 65th ENC, Live and Streaming

Mark your calendar for the 2024 IVAN user meeting on Saturday April 6th just before the ENC. This year look for something new! Planning is well underway for a full-day symposium about a single topic, “Benchtop NMR, New Technology and Applications”. Join us at the Oak Shelter suite at Asilomar for coffee on Saturday about 8:00 AM. Talks will start about 8:30 AM, continue all day and we will conclude with a reception. The symposium will also stream on Zoom and YouTube.

Vendors of benchtop NMR systems, including Bruker, Magritek, Nanalysis, Oxford and Q Magnetics, will be present.  Vendors will speak about their new benchtop NMR technologies and we also will hear talks from their users demonstrating applications and use. Learn what benchtop NMR systems can do for you in education, research, medicine, and manufacturing.

The fourth annual IVAN Founders Award will be presented mid-day. Nominations are open, now with a simplified nomination procedure. The award continues to be an engraved MOVA globe and a check for $2500.
