The AMMRL is a group of individuals who are responsible for the operation of laboratories and instrumentation for magnetic resonance spectroscopy,
including nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our main goal is to assist
one another in providing the best resources possible for research and applications using magnetic resonance spectroscopy, through exchange of information
and experience. AMMRL has no formal organizational structure, providing instead an informal means for like-minded individuals to find one other
and explore issues of mutual importance.

A steering committee is responsible for the operation of the group. Questions, suggestions, comments, or complaints regarding the operation of the Association of Managers in Magnetic Resonance Laboratories may be addressed to any member of this ad hoc committee. Send mail to to all members of the AMMRL steering committee.
