  • The 17th National MR Meeting, MR 2023, will take place on May 22-23, 2023, in Trondheim, Norway.

Dear MR scientist,

We are pleased to open the registration for MR 2023 — the 17th biennial conference of the Norwegian Society for Magnetic Resonance.

The conference will be held on the 22nd and 23rd of May 2023 at the Scandic Nidelven hotel in Trondheim and will have a lunch-to-lunch format. The program will include keynote speakers (to be announced), presentations, flash presentations, and posters from participants.

Practical information about the conference venue and accomodation can be found here.

Conference program

The deadline has been extended until 19th May 2023.

We are proud to announce three excellent keynote speakers!

Dr. Mathilde Hauge Lerche — Technical University of Denmark, Denmark

Dr. Mathilde Hauge Lerche

Mathilde Lerche's research is strongly anchored on development of biomarkers, methods and equipment to enhance the utility of hyperpolarized metabolic contrast agents for in cell and in vivo magnetic resonance investigations. A central interest is understanding and finding effective solutions to the fundamental challenge of hyperpolarization: the short signal life-time. The conducted research is particularly tuned in on the field of biotechnology where technical engineering solutions, theoretical physics translated into practice and further optimized chemistry and biological application in recent years has led on studies of complex pathologies aiming at early diagnosis and monitoring of therapeutic effects.

Ao. Univ.-Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Klaus Zangger — University of Graz, Austria

Dr. Neil Peter Jerome

Klaus Zangger is the head of the NMR lab at the Institute of Chemistry, University of Graz. He has worked on developing NMR methods such as resolution enhancement by homonuclear broadband decoupling and "pure shift" NMR, chemical exchange measurement via CEST and solution PRE, and accordion-HMQC for measuring proton-heteronuclear coupling constants. He has also applied these and other methods for the characterization of various biomolecular systems including proteins and compound mixtures.

Dr. Neil Peter Jerome — NTNU/Siemens Healthineers, Norway

Dr. Neil Peter Jerome

With a background and PhD in high-resolution solution NMR, Neil Jerome moved into MR imaging as a post-doctoral researcher and has worked with both pre-clinical and clinical imaging, studying the characterization and assessment of cancer across regions including brain, kidney, ovary, and breast. As a physicist, his focus has been understanding the limitations and value of advanced diffusion modelling in MRI. As well as teaching MR physics at NTNU, he currently works as an on-site scientist for Siemens Healthineers, attached to the Norwegian 7T Centre at NTNU and St Olavs Hospital, which houses Norway's first ultra-high-field clinical MR scanner.

In addition, we are organizing a conference with a strong focus on student participation with many time slots for oral presentations.

Conference program

One of the main goals of The Norwegian Society for Magnetic Resonance is to strengthen the scientific bonds between MR researchers at the universities in Norway. We invite contributions for posters and presentations, and we encourage sharing research experience and important scientific improvements within biochemistry, organic chemistry, medical research and many other fields. We hope that as many of you as possible can join us in Trondheim on May 2023 to meet new and old NMR/MRI friends.
