The Division of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy pursues the advancement of magnetic resonance methods, creating a forum for the contact among all scientists working in the field of magnetic resonance in academia, industry and other institutions in Germany and abroad, whereby the exchange of ideas and experiences among chemists, physicists and biologists, concordant with the interdisciplinary character of the methods, is especially important.” (Citation from the bylaws of Division).
Since the Division’s founding in 1978, its agenda has become even more important through the continuously growing significance of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR). The Division considers itself an interdisciplinary association which seeks not only proximity to chemists but also to physicists, biologists and physicians. Nearly 500 members from industry and academia joined the Division in order to represent the interests of magnetic resonance spectroscopy in scientific committees and to cultivate the contact with other organizations. Beyond its constitutional ties, the Division is integrated in international events through the work of its members in European and international committees. Especially important is the aim to strengthen contacts with the European neighbors. Every other annual Division conference is thus organized with scientific support by colleagues from another European country.
Among others, activities of the Division comprise its international annual lecture conference, vocational education courses, information events, and special events on particular topics that are organized by active members. EPR is represented by its own working group that, in turn, belongs to the European EPR Federation. The newsletter, “MARS”, reports about activities and news from the Division and beyond.
