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.
