Yunan Peng was awarded the Agilent Award for best poster presentation at the XII International Conference on the Applications of Magnetic Resonance in Food Science: Defining Food by Magnetic Resonance (FoodMR 2014). The award was judged by the six member international scientific committee who reached a unanimous decision. It came with a prize of 500 Euro for books and is sponsored by Agilent Technologies.

Yunan's poster, Ultra-fast MRI of jetting in granular dispersion, detailed work on the development and co-registration of the two-dimensional MR imaging sequences for liquid and static grain imaging, which allows the liquid and grain interaction in this multi-phase system to be observed in situ for the first time.

FoodMR 2014 was held in Cesena, Italy, 20-23 May 2014. It is a bi-annual conference organized under auspices of the Groupement AMPERE.

Yunan said that it was a great environment to network with experts in food science from both academia and industry. The conference provided a platform for discussions on the latest innovations and applications of MR to the understanding of food, its processing, stability and nutritional value. The applications of MR relaxometry, diffusometry and imaging, in both time-and frequency domain to food research were presented, with particular focus on the theme of Foodomics.

Yunan Peng is a PhD student at the MRRC under the supervision of Dr Mick Mantle, Dr Andy Sederman and Prof. Lynn Gladden, working on the project "Ultra-fast MRI and quantitative image analysis of granular dispersion and dissolution" in collaboration with Nestle Research.
