The XXVIIth ICMRBS will be a stimulating scientific meeting presenting the latest breakthroughs in all aspects of magnetic resonance in biology. The conference will include sessions on solution NMR, solid-state NMR, EPR, MR imaging, and theory methods. The conference will include both oral and poster presentations, and will provide significant opportunities for presentations, especially by young investigators. On behalf of the organizing committee and the board members, we are pleased to cordially invite you to join us in making the XXVIIth ICMRBS a memorable event. We especially encourage young magnetic resonance researchers to attend the conference and present their own research accomplishments. Needless to say, the active participation of young scientists is the most important asset and tradition of the ICMRBS.
