THE UKMRM is an informal association for managers of magnetic resonance laboratories across the UK, founded in 2012 by Tim Claridge (Oxford) and Craig Butts (Bristol). Its aim is to promote the sharing of experiences, skills, information and ideas across the MR community. It operates primarily through its email list and holds an annual 1-day meeting each year where selected topics are discussed. Programmes and presentations from past meetings may be found below.

If you wish to join the UKMRM mail list, please send a mail from the email address you wish to be added to: ukmrm-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk

Only requests from recognised academic or industrial email addresses will be allowed to join the list.

The 2018 meeting will take place on Wed 20th June at the University of Warwick.
