Meeting Description

Electron and nuclear spin, as probed by magnetic resonance, has now been associated with a Nobel Prize in Physics, two in Chemistry, and another in Physiology and Medicine. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have impacted virtually every field of science and engineering, and enjoy a plethora of applications, ranging from medicine and biological sciences, physical sciences and engineering, to industrial sensing and process control. The richness of existing applications of magnetic resonance, and the emergence of new ones, is driven in part by a community of scholars that discover new phenomena, develop new methodology, and deepen scientific analysis of all aspects of magnetic resonance. The 2011 Magnetic Resonance GRC seeks to assemble this community of scholars for the purpose of intellectual engagement and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Following Beat Meier's initiative from the 2009 conference, the 2011 Conference will be preceded by a Gordon Research Seminar that will engage emerging scientists and graduate students in both presentation of their studies in poster format and discussions with senior scholars. Seminar attendees are expected to remain for the full Conference, thereby furthering interaction with leaders in the field. Consistent with previous Magnetic Resonance GRCs, poster presenters will be given an opportunity to summarize their work to the entire conference. The collegial atmosphere of this Conference, with programmed discussion sessions as well as opportunities for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provides an avenue for scientists from different disciplines to brainstorm and promotes cross-disciplinary collaborations in the various research areas represented.
