The 2022 Caldarelli Prize in Magnetic Resonance is awarded to Ashok Ajoy. Ashok has performed pioneering work on quantum-enhanced NMR and MRI to generate new analytical tools on-chip or on the benchtop. His activities include efforts to develop miniaturizable NMR probes, innovative hyperpolarization methodology, and the study of nanoscale spin dynamics. This work provides novel types of measurement modalities, and also allows the elucidation of new nanoscale and quantum phenomena.
The 2022 Regitze R. Vold Memorial Prize is awarded to Tatyana Polenova. Tatayana has contributed to shaping protein solid-state NMR from the very beginning. She has achieved some of the most important mile stones in this field, starting from sequential assignments of one of the first protein samples measured, to advanced recent concepts like fast magic angle spinning and dynamic nuclear polarization. Besides her outstanding contributions to science, she is centrally taking part in the life of NMR, being always supportive and enthusiastic of initiatives to further develop the field, encouraging young scientists, organizing meetings, promoting knowledge transfer, and beyond.
