Early Career Researcher Magnetic Resonance Webinar Series


The ICMRBS is proud to support a webinar series for early career researchers working on magnetic resonance in biological systems. The series will run on the last Wednesday of every month via Zoom. Each will be approximately 1.5-hour long, consisting of 3 scientific talks, 1 non-scientific talk and some time for social networking afterwards. If you would like to present or nominate an ECR presenter, please contact one of our committee (details below). For the latest news related to the webinars follow our Twitter account.


Our next event will be 25th November 2020 4 AM EDT | 9 AM GMT | 10 AM CET | 2:30 PM IST | 5 PM CST | 8 PM AEDT. The theme will be Drug Discovery/Development.
