BRSG Founder's Prize

The BRSG Founder's Prize is offered in memory of the late Professor E R Andrew, pioneer of magic angle spinning and other methods in magnetic resonance.

Professor Andrew was founder of the British Radiofrequency Spectroscopy Group, now named IOP BRSG: The Magnetic Resonance Group, and became the first group chair at the inaugural meeting at University College of North Wales, in Bangor, on 27 September 1956.

Terms of reference
The prize is awarded annually on the basis of a presentation, either oral or poster at the nominated meeting. A winning presentation must show development in application or method of magnetic resonance. Further information can be found in the prize guidelines.

The prize will be awarded to a scientist in the first part of their career, that is, a current student, or person within five years of the date of the PhD exam (allowing for career breaks), of any nationality, attending the nominated meeting. The recipient need not be a member of the IOP BRSG: The Magnetic Resonance Group.

Prize amount

The next award meeting will be in 2012.
