2018 Magnetic Resonance Workshop @ Georgia Tech

The aim of this workshop is to:

  • Foster the collaboration and communication between all researchers and laboratories at Georgia Tech and neighboring universities working with the closely related techniques NMR spectroscopy and MRI.
  • Help researchers to get started using Magnetic Resonance in their research.
  • Allow advanced students and post-docs to showcase their research.

The central part of the workshop will be a “mini symposium” with a variety of short talks covering MR applications ranging from functional MRI over Biochemistry to Material Sciences.

This is the opportunity to learn about NMR and MRI and ask questions!
