Luisa Ciobanu

luisa ciobanu

University Medical Centre, Utrecht

Luisa Ciobanu is Research Director and leader of NeuroPhysics team at NeuroSpin, CEA-Saclay. She received her doctorate in Physics from The Ohio State University and has held research appointments at the Beckman Institute, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Pfizer, Inc. before joining NeuroSpin in 2007. Her current research focuses on the development of advanced high-field magnetic resonance imaging techniques, including chemical exchange saturation transfer, diffusion and functional MRI, and their application to the understanding of fundamental physical principles underlying biological function.

christophe copéret

ETH, Zűrich

Prof. Christophe Copéret (CCH) was trained in chemistry and chemical engineering (CPE-Lyon, France, and carried out a PhD with Prof. E.i. Negishi (Purdue University,), where he investigated the synthesis of complex molecules via Pd-catalyzed carbonylation reactions. After a postdoctoral stay with Prof. K.B. Sharpless (Scripps), CCH entered CNRS in 1998 and was promoted CNRS Director in 2008. Since 2010, CCH is Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences, ETH Zürich, and has become an Associate Editor for JACS in 2022. The scientific interest of CCH lies at the frontiers of molecular, material and surface chemistry as well as NMR spectroscopy with the aims to understand the electronic structure and design molecularly-defined heterogenous catalysts.

Jiangfeng Du

Jiangfeng du

Hefei University of Science and Technology of China

Prof. Dr. Jiangfeng Du, professor of University of Science and Technology of China and Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is a quantum physicist specializing in spin quantum control and its applications. He has developed a series of advanced spin quantum control methods to precisely manipulate spin quantum states and preserve its quantum coherence. Based on these, he achieved fruitful scientific achievements including the single-molecule magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging. So far he has published more than 300 scientific papers, including 69 papers published in Nature, Science, Nature Physics, Nature Methods, Nature Communications, Science Advances, and Physical Review Letters.

Simon Duckett

simon duckett

University of York

Simon Duckett is currently Director of the York Centre for Hyperpolarisation in Magnetic Resonance. He has worked to develop an array of methods that increase the sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance. These are based on the para-hydrogen approach, and unlock novel applications that span analysis, the probing of reactivity especially catalysis, its use in quantum computation, and contrast agent design. His SABRE method, which uses catalysis to change molecular magnetism rather than chemical form, is now being applied to many classes of organic molecule to improve their detectability. Recently he expanded this method to provide access to the ‘hyperpharmaceutical’ in reflection of radiopharmaceuticals use in positron emission spectroscopy

Patrick Giraudeau

PATRICK GIRAUDEAU

University of Nantes

Prof. Patrick Giraudeau is a full Professor at the University of Nantes, where he leads the analytical chemistry research group and the NMR facility of the CEISAM research institute. In 2014, he became a fellow of the Institut Universitaire de France, and received a consolidator grant from the European Research Council in 2019. His research activities at the CEISAM research institute focus on the development of quantitative NMR methods for the analysis of complex mixtures, including applications to metabolomics. Prof. Patrick Giraudeau is the vice-president of the Ampere Society and of the French-speaking metabolomics society. He is an associate editor of Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry (Wiley) and of Magnetic Resonance (Copernicus).

Gareth Morris

gareth morris

University of Manchester

I was successively an undergraduate, postgraduate and research fellow at Magdalen College Oxford from 1972 to 1981. In 1978-9 I spent a year’s leave of absence with Laurie Hall at the University of British Columbia. In 1982 I moved to Manchester University, where I am now Professor of Physical Chemistry. Awards include the RSC Corday-Morgan prize and medal in 1988, a Leverhulme Fellowship in 1996, the RSC Industrially-Sponsored Award in Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy in 2001, the Russell Varian Prize for NMR in 2011, Fellowship of the Royal Society in 2014, the James N. Shoolery Award in 2015, and the Günther Laukien Prize in 2021.

Jeff Reimer

JEFF REIMER

Berkeley University of California

Jeffrey A. Reimer received his bachelor’s degree (with honors) from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and his doctorate from the California Institute of Technology. After his postdoc at IBM Research in New York he joined the faculty at the University of California, Berkeley where his scholarship focuses on materials chemistry and physics. His NMR work is recognized by election as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a Fellow of the American Physical Society, a Fellow of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance, and a Research Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Chantal Tax

chantal tax

University Medical Centre, Utrecht

Chantal received her masters in Medical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology and PhD in Medical Imaging (with a focus on diffusion MRI) at the UMC Utrecht. Since then, she has been working at CUBRIC, Cardiff University in the UK on extracting new information from multi-contrast MRI experiments with the ultra-strong gradient Connectom MRI scanner. She is interested in optimising different aspects of the preprocessing and analysis pipeline, as  well as applying differential geometric methods to diffusion MRI data. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the UMC Utrecht and research Fellow at Cardiff University, and her recent efforts focus on optimising MRI experiment design and translating novel methodolgy in multi-contrast MRI to clinical applications.

Christina Thiele

CHRISTINA THIELE

Technical University of Darmstadt

Christina M. Thiele grew up in Linz/Austria. She studied chemistry in Dortmund and London. Following her doctoral studies in organometallic chemistry in Dortmund, she decided to move deeper into NMR and started doing independent research in Leipzig and Darmstadt. Since 2011 she is full professor at the Technische Universität Darmstadt.
Her research is focused on methods development for the NMR spectroscopic determination of conformations and configurations of organic compounds and catalytically active species. In recent times she also specializes on reaction monitoring in the NMR. The driving force of her research is a deeper understanding of structure activity relationships in organic chemistry.
