Our primary interest is in the development of improved NMR techniques, but we also collaborate on a wide range of applications of NMR in chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacy and medicine - not just for their intrinsic interest, but also because testing the limits of current methods is a powerful source of inspiration for their improvement. Some recent collaborations are listed below.
