Main Research Interests
My research interests focus on the development and application of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques applied to chemical engineering and pharmaceutical research. I have extensive 'hands-on' experience operating magnetic resonance spectrometers and have considerable expertise in pulse sequence design and image analysis. I manage the day-today operation, maintenance and scheduling of five state-of-the-art superconducting NMR/MRI spectrometers capable of performing liquids, solids and imaging NMR measurements. My current research focuses on the use of advanced multi-nuclear NMR and MRI methods to quantify dissolution behaviour of solid pharmaceutical dosage forms.
Dr Mick Mantle obtained his Bachelors degree and Ph.D. in chemistry from Queen Mary College, University of London. He is currently Assistant Director of Research and Lecturer at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge. His research specialises in the use of quantitative magnetic resonance techniques applied to chemical engineering and pharmaceutical research. He has authored and co-authored over 100 research publications. He was recently commissioned by the European Kinetic Consortium (EUROKIN) to write a treatise on Diffusion and Effective diffusivity in Porous Media and currently acts as a consultant to the pharmaceutical industry and the Ministry of Defence, UK.
