Prof. Anatole Abragam made many seminal contributions to both NMR and EPR, was a recipient of the ISMAR Prize, and was also a Fellow of ISMAR. In addition to his superb scientific contributions, Prof. Abragam actively fostered the careers of many younger scientists. With this in mind, ISMAR established the Anatole Abragam Prize for young investigators in magnetic resonance. The Abragam Prize is sponsored by the Bruker Corporation.
Candidates are eligible within seven years of completing their PhD (excluding career delays due to child birth, illness and other special family circumstances). They can be nominated by any regular member of ISMAR. After evaluation by the ISMAR Prize Committee, the winner is selected on the basis of evidence of novel and significant contributions to magnetic resonance. Preference will be given to nominees who have made original and independent contributions to experimental or conceptual aspects of magnetic resonance beyond accomplishments attributable to work performed with their research supervisors. The award aims to recognize and foster outstanding young scientists at a typically important point in their career.
The Anatole Abragam Prize is presented during the opening session of each biennial ISMAR conference.
