Björn Burmann

The winner of the 2017 Anatole Abragam prize is Dr. Björn Burmann from Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. He was awarded the prize for pioneering contributions to the determination of structure and dynamics of chaperone-client complexes at atomic resolution by solution NMR.

Loren Andreas

The winner of the 2017 Anatole Abragam prize is Dr. Loren Andreas from Max Plank Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, Germany. He was awarded the prize for pioneering contributions to the structure determination of large proteins in the solid state using 1H-detected MAS techniques.

Alexander Pines

Professor Alexander Pines is awarded the 2017 ISMAR prize for his many landmark contributions to magnetic resonance, in particular to solid-state NMR, including time-reversal of dipole-dipole couplings, cross polarization of dilute spins in solids, multiple-quantum spectroscopy, double rotation and dynamic angle spinning of quadrupolar nuclei, the geometric (Berry) phase, ex situ and remote detection, ultralow and zero-field NMR and MRI, optical hyperpolarization and detection, functionalized hyperpolarized Xe as a biosensor, and his leadership as an inspiring teacher and mentor in the fiel

Agilent Exits NMR Business

Agilent Technologies Inc. announced it is exiting its Nuclear Magnetic Resonance business. Agilent entered the NMR business in 2010, with the acquisition of Varian. Agilent will stop taking new NMR system orders immediately, but the company will continue to meet customer commitments for orders in progress and for ongoing support contracts. Agilent will continue to provide service on all installed NMR systems.
