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!
