samman1994 Posted August 31, 2017 Share Posted August 31, 2017 (edited) Hello everyone, I have been looking for protein NMR research labs the past month, and have compiled, what I think is a semi-decent list, that I thought I would share for anyone looking into the same field. There will be many schools I have missed of course, but I think this is at least a decent starting point. NOTE: There are many good international schools for protein NMR as well, this is only for US schools. Criteria: 1) The focus of the lab must be primarily NMR (solid-state or liquid), other biophysical/computational methods may be used as well, but the focus is NMR. 2) This is not about developing NMR methods, but its application. The lab may have some development as well, but from my readings, it appears they have a major application component as well. 3) The lab must focus on proteins, now this could be protein-DNA, protein-RNA, or protein-protein, but the focus is on either structure,dynamics, or folding (for the most part). 4) Each lab must have at least 3 members minimum that pass the above guidelines With that being said, these are the schools with the following faculty members that pass the above criteria: John Hoppkins (Joel Schildbach, David R. Shortle, Vincent J. Hilser, Juliette Lecomte, Karen Fleming, Tolman lab) Scripps Institute (Jane Dyson, Peter Wright, Kurt Wuthrich, Takanori Otomo) Brown University (Nicolas Fawzi, Wolfgang Peti, Rebecca Page,) Harvard (Victoria D'souza, Haribabu Arthanari, James Jeiwen Chou, Gerhard Wagner) Yale (Karen S Anderson, George Petter Beardsley, Andrew D. Miranker, Patrick Loria, maybe Elias Lolis) Stanford (Lynette Cegelski, Elisabetta Viani Puglisi, Joseph Puglisi) Cornell (Linda Nicholson, maybe Jack Freed, Robert E. Oswald) Duke (Leonard D. Spicer, Terrence Gilbert Oas, Pei Zhou, Al-Hashimi) State College of New York (Kevin Dardner, Zimei Bu, Ranajeet ghose) University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (Sharon Campbell, David Williams, maybe Gary Pielak, Andrew L Lee, Qi Zhang) University of Conneticut (Cole, Dmitry Korzhnev, Michael Gryk, Irina Bezsnova, Alexandrescu, Teschke) University of Washington (Rachel Klevit, Gabriele Varani, Michael Massiah) University of Minnesota (Kevin H. Mayo, Gianluigi Veglia, Hiroshi Matsuo [NIH], Ian M. Armitage, maybe Ferguson, Kalodimos ) University of Georgia (Jeffery Urbauer, Art Edison, maybe James Prestegard, Arthur Roberts) University of Wisconsin (Cavagnero, Katherin wildman, Markley) University of Michigan ( Rams Ramamoorthy, Randy Stockbridge, Tomasz Cierpicki, Erik Zuiderweg, Jeffrey W. Peng) University of Alabama (N. Rama Krishna, Jun Zhang, Margret Johnson, Russel Timkovish) University of Virginia (John Bushweller, Linda Columbus,David S. Cafiso, Charles M. Grisham,) University of Pennsylvania ( Joshua Wand, Heinrich Roder, Walter Englander) Oregon State University (Afua Nyarko, Victor Hsu, Elisar Barbar) Iowa State University (Julien Roche, Amy Andreotti, Vincenzo Venditti) Case Western Reserve University (Matthias Buck, Zagorski, Blanton S. Tolber, Jun Qin) Brandeis University (Dorothee Kern, Thomas Pochapsky, Judith Herzfeld, Klaus Schmidt-Rohr) University of Montanta (Valerie Copie, Klara Briknarova [this only has 2 but I really liked their research]) University of Utah (Jack J. Skalicky, Peter Flynn, Bethany Buck-Koehntop, Gholdenberg) University of Colorado (Arthur Pardi, Loren Hough, David Jones,Tatiana Kutateladze, Beat Vogeli) University of Arizona (Wolfgang Peti, Matthew Cordes, Michael F. Brown) NOTE: USC also had 3, however due to the personality of one of the faculty members (Tobias Ulmer), I crossed them off, and thus, crossed off USC from my list (left me with only 2 faculty) Again there are many schools that I may have missed, but I think this is a good list to start with. I am done looking at schools personally, I think this is a big enough range of researchers for me to work with, but if anyone else has more suggestions, feel free to post them below. I've tried to be as comprehensive as possible with the schools listed above, so the names there I believe should be the only faculty members that fit the criteria stated above. Again, if I missed any schools, or any people, please feel free to add them below. Hope this helps. Happy Searching! EDIT: Forgot the mention, the NIH also has a lot of great protein NMR labs that you can do your PhD under as well. Didn't really look too into that in detail, but I know they have a lot of good labs as well. Edited August 31, 2017 by samman1994 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
