The 8th qNMR Summit 2024 | August 15+16, 2024 | Chicago | Hybrid Event


qNMR Summit | The Integrative Global qNMR Expert & Discussion Forum

qNMR Summit events are globally accessible expert and discussion forums on quantitative Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (qNMR), an analytical methodology of wide utility in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacy, and biomedicine that continues to grow steadily.

The goal of qNMR Summits is to convene worldwide stakeholders from academia, government, industry, pharmacopoeias, and regulatory agencies and offer a platform for scientific exchange on the latest qNMR developments, applications, and knowledge in the field of qNMR. qNMR Summits are organized collaboratively since 2016 by teams of volunteers.
