NMR autosampler for academic research.

I spy with my magnetic eye, something beginning with…?

Fri 25 November

Wolfson College

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is well known as a clinical diagnostic tool in medicine, but it also has many uses in non-clinical settings such as food research, fine chemicals production, healthcare research and catalytic reaction engineering to mention but a few.

This talk will showcase examples where MRI and its cousin, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), have been applied to shed new light into our understanding of controlled drug release and formulation and optimising biopharmaceutical production from cell cultures.

The talk will finish with some of our latest research highlighting MRI’s potential as a tool to further our understanding of the production of sustainable synthetic fuels.


Speaker:
Mick Mantle is a professor of applied magnetic resonance in the department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. His research focuses on the development and application of MRI techniques to address fundamental scientific problems, most notably in the pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical industry and heterogenous catalytic reaction engineering.

Details:
This is a hybrid event, which will take place in-person in the Gatsby Room (Chancellor's Centre) and also on Zoom.
