7.-9. March 2018

MR2018 is the 15th national MR meeting in Norway, highlighting research topics in liquid- and solid state NMR as well as MRI.

This year we are proud to present our three keynote speakers:

Prof. Gerhard Wagner from Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA

Gerhard Wagner is professor at the Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School. His extensive research (over 500 publications) is revolving around the structural aspects of protein function with a focus on molecular interactions, structure and dynamics. He has also developed experimental and computational methods for studying large proteins, protein complexes and membrane proteins.

Recent selected key publications: Nature Methods. 14 (2017), 49-52. DOINature Structural and Molecular Biology, 23(9):859-864. DOI, PNAS, 113, E3629-3638 (2016), DOI, Angewandte Chemie, 55, 7176-7179 (2016), DOI, J. Biomol NMR, 63, 323-331 (2015). DOI

Assoc. Prof. Teodor Parella, director of SeRMN, Barcelona, Spain 

Teodor is the director of the NMR Service platform (SeRMN) of the Universitat Autònoma of Barcelona. He has made enormous contributions to the measurement of weak coupling constants, pulse program developments for detecting weak correlations and refinement of pure shift methods. In addition to 280 publications, he has written much of the pulse program documentation in the Bruker NMR guide, something that has greatly helped most of us all to get through our daily NMR lives. More information available on his web page.

Dr. Adam Espe Hansen, manager of the PET/MRI facility at Rigshospitalet, Kopenhagen, Denmark

Adam is physicist and manager of the PET/MRI facility at the Department of Clinical Physiology, Nuclear Medicine & PET, Rigshospitalet. His research (70 publications) revolves around functional imaging of disease including DCE-MRI of brain cancer, PET/MRI attenuation correction for dementia imaging and simultaneous hyperpolarized 13C MRS and PET (hyperPET).
