About the presenter:

Seyma Alcicek is an MD-PhD with clinical experience in nuclear medicine. During her PhD studies in physical science (2018-2022) as a Marie Curie ITN Early Stage Researcher at Jagiellonian University, Poland, she focused on practical applications of zero-and ultralow-field NMR (ZULF NMR) spectroscopy in chemical and biochemical analysis. Recently, she defended her PhD with summa cum laude and became a research fellow of the Mildred Scheel-Medical Scientist program at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. Her current research focus is imaging tumor metabolism using in vivo MR spectroscopy.

About the presentation:

Zero and ultra-low field nuclear magnetic resonance (ZULF NMR) is an alternative NMR method with key features such as high resolution, portability, and cost-effectiveness. This novel spectroscopic method allows high-precision chemical and biochemical analysis based on indirect nuclear spin-spin interactions, so-called J-coupling, by yielding unique, well-resolved, and information-rich J-spectra. In order to detect ZULF NMR signals, atomic magnetometers are often used with the main advantages such as low price, small size, and non-cryogenic operation. Also, the ever-growing commercial availability of such sensors provides technical simplicity and near-zero maintenance. In this seminar, she will present her research to improve the applicability of ZULF NMR as a highly specific, compact, and inexpensive sensor for the analysis of chemical and biological samples.


Please note that we intend to record and publish the session.


We are looking forward to meeting you!
