Award for Jonathan Mitchell

Dr Jonathan Mitchell was recently awarded the Giulio Cesare Borgia Prize 2012 for the best presentation at the bi-annual 11th International Bologna conference on Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media (MRPM), held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK.

This prize is awarded in memory of Giulio Cesare Borgia, a founding member of the Bologna conference series, and is given to a young researcher working in the field of magnetic resonance in porous media who shows considerable promise for a future carrier in academia.

Jonathan Mitchell was awarded the prize after his presentation "Relaxation analysis of porous media: the influence of internal gradients," co-authored by Thusara Chandrasekera and Lynn Gladden. In addition to the best presentation, the citation on his certificate reads: "For his outstanding contribution to the development of cryoporometry, multi-dimensional relaxation experiments and understanding of the impact of internal magnetic field gradients."

Next year, the International Conference on Magnetic Resonance Microscopy (ICMRM), which alternates with MRPM, will be hosted here in Cambridge.
