Vladimír Sklenář, 1951 – 2024

The Magnetic Resonance community mourns the passing of Prof. Vladimír Sklenář on April 13, 2024 at the age of 72.

Vladi was a pioneer of solution NMR methods for nucleic acids, water suppression and many other applications. In his home country Czechia, he built up the large Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC) at the Masaryk University Brno with world-class research infrastructures for structural biology, in particular NMR spectroscopy and electron microscopy.

An appreciation of Vladi’s life and an Electronic Book of Condolence can be found at the CEITEC website.

Vladi was a friend to many of us, always outgoing, caring, careful, full of insight, ideas and humor. We miss him deeply.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
