ACERT Workshop on Denoising Signals

ACERT Workshop on Denoising ESR Signals

ACERT (the National Biomedical Center for Advanced ESR Technology) at Cornell is pleased to announce a hands-on workshop on a set of revolutionary new methods for denoising experimental signals in ESR and related ESR techniques. These methods use signal processing based on wavelets rather than Fourier transforms or signal averaging; and they promise to be game-changing: they have been demonstrated to be able to reduce data acquisition times for ESR experiments by one to two orders of magnitude, without a corresponding loss of accuracy.

To help disseminate these methods to the ESR community, ACERT will be conducting a hands-on workshop on July 30-31, 2018, on the Cornell University campus, ACERT’s home.

You can find details about the workshop on ACERT’s website and in the attached flyer.

EPR Present and Future: Joint SPP1601/SharedEPR Conference

Funding Available for 2 Students and 2 Postdocs

The NSF-sponsored Research Coordination Network titled “Supporting, Highlighting and Advancing Recent Developments in Electron Paramagnetic Resonance” (SharedEPR) announces a special joint meeting with the German DFG supported network SPP1601. The meeting titled “EPR Present and Future: Joint SPP1601/SharedEPR Conference” will take place from Monday October 9 to Thursday Oct 12, 2017 at the beautiful Mohonk Mountain House (www.mohonk.com) in New Paltz, NY.

A primary goal of the SharedEPR network is to facilitate international cooperation and collaboration within the EPR community (www.sharedepr.org). The SPP 1601 research network is a DFG funded priority program comprising approximately 30 of the top EPR research labs in Germany (www.spp1601.de). The network holds an annual meeting to review progress and present results of their research towards the goal of improving the sensitivity of EPR through advances in instrumentation, sample preparation, pulse sequences, etc. In order to facilitate the international interaction, the SPP 1601 network has agreed to hold its annual meeting in conjunction with the SharedEPR network’s Grand Challenge Workshop here in the United States. Approximately 30 German PI’s and 25 U.S. PI’s as well as 2 graduate students and 2 postdocs currently conducting research in U.S. labs will meet jointly at the Mohonk Mountain House in an intimate, “Gordon Conference” style setting to encourage a distraction-free, robust and comprehensive exchange of ideas.

The NSF has provided funding through the SharedEPR Network grant to cover attendees’ costs for the hotel and meals as well as $500 to offset the cost of your travel to and from the meeting.

The scientific program will extend from Monday afternoon through Wednesday evening, with departure on Thursday after breakfast, and will consist of brief talks given by selected meeting participants followed by extensive discussion.   Poster sessions will also be scheduled. Further details regarding specific sessions and topics will be forthcoming.

This will be a unique opportunity to interact with a broad cross section of the international EPR community in a lovely setting. If you are a grad student or postdoc currently conducting EPR-related research in a U.S. based lab and are interested in attending the Conference, please submit a CV and brief abstract (single page pdf) to the email address jointmeeting@sharedepr.org. Because the number of available positions will be limited to 2 graduate students and 2 postdocs, final selection of attendees will be made by the Executive Committee of the SharedEPR network. Please have abstracts submitted by September 5, 2017. Questions regarding this announcement can be directed to Gary Gerfen at jointmeeting@sharedepr.org.

New call for ETTEs – due September 15

Dear SharedEPR community, The SharedEPR network is pleased to announce another call for proposals for EPR Technology Transfer Experiences (ETTEs). ETTEs provide short-term travel funds for US-based students, postdocs and non-tenure track faculty researchers to spend time in other laboratories to get “hands-on” training in new EPR methodologies and bring these advances back to their […]

ETTE – EPR Technology Transfer Experience

We are proud to announce the first call for proposals for the awarding of funds to participate in an inter-lab exchange program named EPR Technology Transfer Experiences (ETTEs).

ETTEs provide short-term travel funds for US-based students, postdocs and non-tenure track faculty researchers to spend time in other laboratories to get “hands-on” training in new EPR methodologies and bring these advances back to their home labs.

The applications for this first round are due on January 15, 2017.

More details about the ETTEs and the application can be found at ETTE — EPR Technology Transfer Experience.
