Targeting Environmental, Agricultural, and Plant Science with Solid-state NMR

According to the NSF, the goal of the RCN (Research Coordination Network) program is to "advance a field or create new directions in research or education by supporting groups of investigators to communicate and coordinate their research, training and educational activities across disciplinary, organizational, geographic and international boundaries. RCN provides opportunities to foster new collaborations, including international partnerships, and address interdisciplinary topics."

With that purpose in mind, Agilent is delighted to host the following NMR Workshop on Saturday, July 12th at our NMR Center of Excellence in Loveland, CO.
