Prof. Robert Tycko, a member of the American Academy of Sciences, made an online lecture entitled "Solid state NMR and MRI at very low temperatures and with dynamic nuclear polarization" on June 26, at the invitation of Professor Tang Chun, doctoral supervisor of University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Lu Junxia, researcher of ShanghaiTech University. In the report, Robert Tycko made a brief introduction of the low-temperature solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance method and dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) technology, and showed his research team's research results on the transient structure of biological macromolecules and micron-scale magnetic resonance imaging through the development of new technologies and new methods.
Robert Tycko is a researcher at NIH in the United States, being elected as a member of the National Academy of Sciences in April, 2020. His work includes contributions to magnetic resonance methodology, condensed matter physics, biophysics, and structural biology, he is best known recently for applications of solid state nuclear magnetic resonance in structural studies of amyloid fibrils that are associated with neurodegenerative diseases.
