Seminar series

ICMRBS ECR seminar series

The ICMRBS is proud to support early career researchers (ECRs) working on magnetic resonance in biological systems. We host a webinar series for ECRs, as well as in person events, and space to promote your research before, during, and after conferences. We’d love you to present, just fill out this form. Alternatively, contact any one of us by email.

NEXT seminar: 14th December 2022 (14:00 UTC, 16:00 CEST)

Delocalized long-lived proton spin states in aliphatic chains

Kirill Sheberstov, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris (France)

Seminar series

Change to the seminar format

We are transitioning to a new format with an ‘off the record’ segment, where speakers highlight pitfalls and challenges in their projects.

What do we do?


Here are the main ways that we are trying to promote NMR/MR ECRs

ECR webinar series

We provide a platform for ECR researchers to present their research, connect, and collaborate.


In collaboration with several funding agencies we work to get more ECRs to conferences. Click their logo below to find out more.


We host events at, and before, major conferences to break the ice, and give non-scheduled speakers a chance to present their research.

Learning resource

We maintain a curated repository of useful NMR learning resources for theoretical and practical elements of NMR.

What we’re excited about

Latest presentations and posters

  • Delocalized long-lived proton spin states in aliphatic chains

    Kirill Sheberstov, Ecole Normale Superiuer, France Summary Long-lived states (LLS) have lifetimes T_{LLS} that can be much longer than longitudinal relaxation times T_1. However, the number of molecules where such states can be excited has hitherto been rather limited. In the talk, it will be discussed that LLS can be readily excited in many common molecules […]


  • Three new tricks on established solid-state NMR pulse sequences for structure determination

    Xue Kai, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Summary Solid state NMR is widely used for atomic level structural investigations. Different pulse sequences are designed for specific systems and information. Here we list three new tricks on the well-established xHHx, hetCOR, and CODEX pulse sequences. These new tricks enable the more efficient and accurate extraction of structural […]


  • Hyperpolarization Techniques in NMR: Applications to Biological Systems

    James Eills, Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (Spain) Hyperpolarization techniques are methods to enhance NMR signals beyond those achievable at thermal equilibrium, and they have had an impact on almost every sub-field in NMR. In this talk I will give an overview of available hyperpolarization techniques and how they are related, and discuss some interesting cases […]

Questions and answers


How do I get in touch?

If you have questions, if you want to present, or if you have a poster that you want to show off to the world, get in touch! Click one of the committee members above, go to the about us section, or submit a general enquiry.


Can I advertise a position with you?

Absolutely! We’ll find some space above, or we can post it on our dedicated funding page.


Who are we and what do we do?

Our mandate is quite simple:

  1. Continue the ICMRBS-ECR webinar series
  2. Create and cultivate a web platform for ECRs to present their current work, eg. via short videos and posters.
  3. Present a curated ‘self-serve’ learning resource scoped for ECRs in NMR/MR fields.
  4. Present a semi-curated list of funding resources available for ECRs in NMR/MR separated by career progression and geographical location.

A massive than you to CCPN for hosting us
