Founders' Medal at ICMRBS XXIX

 

Nominations for the 2020 Founders' Medal are due by the extended deadline of May 22, 2020

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

On behalf of the International Council on Magnetic Resonance in Biological Systems (ICMRBS) and the award selection committee, I would like to invite you to nominate excellent young magnetic resonance spectroscopists for the 2020 Founders' Medal, www.icmrbs.org/founders-medal. This prestigious award was established in 2002 by the ICMRBS to recognize exceptional contributions by young scientists to the development and progress of the field of magnetic resonance in biological systems. The awardee will be presented with the medal and US $3000 at the upcoming XXIX ICMRBS meeting, to be held in Boston, USA, on July 18 - 23, 2021. The awardee will be invited to present a lecture at the conference. The awardee should be no more than 12 years post-Ph.D., plus 1 year for each child, at the time of the ICMRBS meeting. 


 
Nominations should be submitted to meihong@mit.edu by Friday May 22, 2020. The nomination package should include: 

  • a signed nomination letter (self-nominations are not allowed); 
  • outline of the nominee's exceptional contributions; and 
  • the nominee's CV and publication list. 

 
We hope that you will take a moment to nominate highly talented and dynamic young NMR spectroscopists, and help to keep our field vibrant and innovative.
