[NMR] Summer School on Nuclear Spin Hyperpolarisation Techniques

From the Ampere Magnetic Resonance List

Dear Colleagues,

we are happy to announce that the next Summer School on Nuclear Spin Hyperpolarisation Techniques, organised within the EU-COST Framework (Action TD-1103), is now open for registration.

If interested, please register through the website:

The school will be held in an hotel within the beautiful Marwell Zoo and Wildlife Park nearby Southampton, UK. Social events include a Zoo Safari and a BBQ at the Zoo.

The main purpose of the school is to train the young generation of scientists (PhD's and PostDocs) working in the field of magnetic resonance in novel methodologies for nuclear spin hyperpolarisation. For this purpose the school will discuss several hyperpolarisation techniques:

* Solid-State DNP
* dissolution-DNP
* Overhauser-DNP
* PHIP/SABRE (ParaHydrogen Induced Polarisation)
* CIDNP (Chemically induced DNP)
* QRIP (Quantum Rotor Induced Polarisation)

at 4 different levels: Theory, Simulations, Instrumentation and Applications.

The school is coordinated by Giuseppe Pileio (University of Southampton, UK) and Björn Corzilius (Goethe University Frankfurt, DE);

It boasts a rich list of top class teachers and scientists whose researches have contributed to estabilish the field of nuclear spin hyperpolarisation:

* Shimon Vega (Weizmann Institite, IL)
* Bob Griffin (MIT, Cambridge, US)
* Kevin Brindle (University of Cambridge, UK)
* Walter Kockenberger (University of Nottingham, UK)
* Ilya Kuprov (University of Southampton, UK)
* Jan-Henrik Arderkjaeren-Larsen (DTU Copenhagen, DK)
* Sami Jannin (EPFL, CH)
* Marina Bennati (MPI, Göttingen, DE)
* Marco Tessari (IMM, Nijmegen, NL)

N.B.: The school is open to PhD's, PostDocs and early career scientists but we can allow only a total number of 30 participants. Places will be assigned on a first come first served base so please do not wait the last minute to register! People from countries enrolled in the COST Action are entitled to a fixed reimbursement of 500€.

Students grants are provided by EU-COST Action TD-1103. The Zoo Safari and the BBQ have been generously offered by Bruker. Oxford Instruments and Cortecnet have generously offered drinks for all dinners.

Looking forward to seeing you at the School,
Giuseppe Pileio and Björn Corzilius
