Supported by the Director's Fund

Summary of Meeting:
Frontiers of NMR in Molecular Biology has evolved to be the premier meeting in macromolecular NMR. It brings together leaders in the field in methods development, data processing and analysis, and structural biology using solution and solid state NMR. This meeting will reflect the development and unique applications of NMR spectroscopy for studying biologically important macromolecules and their interactions. This includes analysis of structures along the pathway from free to bound; conformational dynamics that affect catalysis, function, and folding; screening of protein and RNA binding ligands for drug development; studies of misfolded proteins that can cause disease; nucleic acid folding and function; and methods for determining membrane protein structure and activity. This field has an enormous impact on the pharmaceutical industry, as well as on medical sciences, by providing methods for investigating proteins and nucleic acids that cause disease when mutated or that can be targeted by drugs for disease prevention. Challenges of more efficient structure determination, representation and analysis of dynamic data, and structural studies of macromolecular assemblies and complexes will be addressed.

Keystone Symposia is offering scholarships of up to 1,200 USD to Students and Postdoctoral fellows. These scholarships are to be used to help defray the expenses associated with conference attendance, including airfare (restrictions may apply based on funding source), ground transportation, lodging costs, and a portion of meeting registration. Receipts will be required to receive reimbursement.

Abstracts submitted for poster presentation will be used as the basis for awarding the scholarships. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on the quality of science of the abstract and the relevance of the abstract to the conference topic. Only one application per abstract is accepted. Only one award per lab will be allocated.


To be eligible for a scholarship, you must be:

A graduate student or postdoctoral fellow currently enrolled in an academic institute at the start of the meeting for which you are applying. Note: a graduate student is defined as a student who is studying for a higher degree at an academic institution. A postdoctoral fellow is defined as an individual with a Ph.D., M.D., or DVM degree who is engaged in a temporary period of mentored research and/or scholarly training for the purpose of acquiring the professional skills needed to pursue their desired career path, and is within 6 years of these degrees.

Review Criteria

Criteria for Abstract Review:

  1. Relevance to the meeting topic
  2. Significance of the scientific question and results
  3. Style
    • Organization (e.g. the abstract has a clear beginning, middle and end)
    • Grammar and spelling
  4. Clarity of scientific presentations
    • Clear question or hypothesis
    • Sufficient background
    • The experimental approach and rationale for the approach are clear
    • The results are clearly presented
    • The interpretation and conclusions are reasonable and logical

Application Process

If you are eligible and wish to be considered for a scholarship, you should complete all of the following by the scholarship deadline for the meeting you wish to attend. It is recommended you begin these steps in advance of the deadline date to ensure completion.
