9th (biennial) Western Sydney University & Inaugural Asian Symposium on NMR, MRI & Diffusion 2020

Highlights

Bernhard Blümich

"Advances and Adventures with Mobile NMR"

Bernhard Blümich, Denis Jaschtschuk, and Christian Rehorn
Institut für Technische und Makromolekulare Chemie, RWTH Aachen University
Mobile NMR enables a variety of studies which are out of range when relying on conventional NMR instruments. For the most part, mobile NMR instruments are stray-field sensors, that characterize material properties by investigating relaxation and diffusion of nuclear magnetization. This contribution reviews the principles of portable stray-field NMR and selected recent applications to nondestructive materials testing and to tangible cultural heritage in- and outside the laboratory.

Nirbhay Yadav

"Magnetic resonance imaging of glycogen using its magnetic coupling with water"

Nirbhay N. Yadav, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and The Kennedy Krieger Institute, USA. Dr Yadav completed his PhD at the University of Western Sydney, Australia working on NMR studies of molecular diffusion under the supervision of Prof. William S. Price. In 2010, he moved to Johns Hopkins to take up a Post-Doctoral Fellowship under the supervision of Prof. Peter van Zijl. Dr Yadav has published over 50 reviewed articles and serves as the principle investigator for an ongoing National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded study. His current research interests include the development of MRI-based molecular imaging methods and the application of these methods in animal models and human patients with cancer, stroke, and neurodegenerative diseases
