Magnetic Resonance (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Methods and Applications


June 11-12, 2011


University of New England
Biddeford, ME


Michael Liszka

Associate Chair:
Dustin Wheeler

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Magnetic Resonance is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is to present the implementation of new methods in nuclear magnetic resonance, electron spin resonance and magnetic resonance imaging and the application of magnetic resonance techniques to new systems and problems in physics, chemistry, biology and medicine.
