Upcoming Events

New York City Integrative Structural Biology Symposium

October 9-11, 2024

Integrative structural biology is a powerful approach to understand biological macromolecular systems. By combining computational methods with structural science disciplines, spatial and temporal models of macromolecular targets in their in-situ context can be determined. The focus of this workshop is to understand the challenges and opportunities of applying integrative structural biology techniques to one’s research. The fields of light microscopy, mass spectrometry, X-ray crystallography, NMR, cryo-EM, and computational methods will be highlighted. The topics will cover the best practices and current research toward building structural models across different resolution scales. This workshop will also offer hands-on demos to explore what instrumentation is available to be integrated to address conformational changes, flexibility, and dynamics in macromolecular and cellular structures.

MicroED Short Course
November 4-6, 2024

NYSBC, SEMC and NCCAT will offer a 3-day short course November 4-6. Day one of the course will encompass lectures that delve into the multiple steps of the MicroED workflow. Days 2 & 3 will have practicals in sample preparation, setting up a TEM for data collection, and data processing. For those that want further instruction and a chance to collect their own data, we will host a bonus day for independent practice on November 7. Please click here to register

Graduate Courses

NYSBC offers three semester long, fully accredited, graduate level courses available to students from NYSBC’s nine member institutions.

NMR Spectroscopy of Macromolecules

A detailed survey of the principles of modern techniques in NMR spectroscopy as applied to biological macromolecules. Offered Spring Semester in even-numbered years through Columbia University. For more information vist the course website here.

Cryoelectron Microscopy of Macromolecular Assemblies

Covers the theory and practice of solving structures by CEM. NYSBC also conducts non-credit, one-day Cryoelectron Microscopy workshops with presentations and practical demonstrations. Offered each Spring through our member institution registrars. For more information visit the course website here.

Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy

Training in protein structure determination by NMR. Offered Spring Semester in odd-numbered years through CUNY. For more information visit the website here.

Special Training Courses

NYSBC also offers Short Training Courses to help users become familiar with NMR spectrometer operation. Solution State Protein NMR and Solid State Protein NMR are offered to affiliates who:

  • Have only a limited exposure to multidimensional NMR, but are familiar with simple NMR.
  • Will begin operating the spectrometers locally at NYSBC within 3 months of the course.
  • Are familiar with non-Bruker spectrometers, but need specific training for effective use of Bruker systems.

NYSBC hosts occasional school visits from elementary, middle, and high school students.
