Paul Schanda receives Varian Young Investigator Award

The EUROMAR committee awarded the Varian Young Investigator prize to Paul Schanda (IBS/NMR). This prestigious award was created in honour of Russel Varian, a pioneer in NMR spectroscopy, to recognize a single investigator within the first 12 years of his/her independent career, for achievements in any area of magnetic resonance.
This award recognises Paul Schanda’s methodological developments to characterise the dynamics and structure of proteins in solid and liquid states. Some of the methods developed by his team are widely used to monitor, for example, the kinetic processes of proteins, or to detect transient conformational states (details).
A few weeks ago, Paul Schanda was also awarded the ICMRBS Founders’ Medal, which recognises the outstanding contributions of young scientists to the development of magnetic resonance in biological systems.
