From Traditional Small Molecules to Novel Liquid Crystal Formulations in Drug Development: A Solid-State NMR Journey 


The journey and exploration of solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (ssNMR) in understanding complex materials are still ongoing and the good news is that pharmaceutical companies are more routinely using under-utilized ssNMR methodologies to understand novel/complex molecules and formulations in small, milla and macromolecules. The talk takes you through a journey of exploring ssNMR to understand small, complex molecules and novel formulations like liquid crystal formulations. The talk will also cover applications of low-field time domain NMR in pharmaceutical industry. 

Dr. Anuji Abraham is a Senior Research Investigator at Materials Science and Engineering in Product Development at Bristol-Meyers Squibb, New Jersey.  Anuji received her PHD from ETH, Zurich Switzerland and worked as post-doctoral/research fellow at EPFL-Lausanne, Switzerland, Durham University, UK and University of West Virginia, USA. She has 10+ years of research experience in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy in the development of Pharmaceutical sciences, Nanotechnology, Materials Science and Petrochemical catalysts. Besides her role as a Subject Matter expert of ssNMR at BMS, she is also a project leader for two projects at BMS. Anuji has co-authored about 25 manuscripts and made numerous presentations and sessions at national and international meetings and is a peer reviewer for scientific journals. She is in the executive organizing committee of PANIC conference and is in the associate editorial board of Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry. She is a champion of ‘Women in science’ at BMS.
