Mission Statement

This study group is focused on advancing the field of hyperpolarization to understand biological mechanisms and conditions (i.e,. metabolism, pH, redox potential, binding). The objective is to increase the open exchange of applied techniques, methods and findings to advance parahydrogen induced polarization (PHIP) and dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) into mainstream MRI methods. The study group will develop and share online content to aid individual research groups through (1) accumulated experimental results, (2) data publication standards (e.g., polarization values at the time of delivery, recognized abbreviations), (3) potential collaborators and (4) PHIP and DNP research locations

The Hyperpolarization Studygroup Methods and Equipment is part of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine
