Prof William Price

Professor of Medical Imaging Physics

William (Bill) S. Price received his BSc(Hons), PhD and DSc degrees from the University of Sydney in 1986, 1990 and 2012, respectively. After postdoctoral study at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Science in Taipei, Taiwan and the National Institute of Material and Chemical Research in Tsukuba, Japan he joined the Water Research Institute in Tsukuba, Japan in 1995 and became Chief Scientist in 1996. In 2000 he went for a year at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). In 2001 he returned to Japan as Professor of Chemistry at Tokyo Metropolitan University. Since 2003 he has been at Western Sydney University where he holds the Chair of Medical Imaging Physics. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) and the Australian Institute of Physics (AIP) and a member of numerous other professional societies. He is Editor-in-Chief of the (UK) Royal Society of Chemistry’s “New Developments in NMR” book series (http://rsc.li/nmr).
Bill’s research interests include Medical Physics, Magnetic Resonance and Biophysics: Especially molecular dynamics in biological (e.g., tumours) and chemical systems using NMR imaging (i.e., MRI), relaxation and NMR measurements of translational diffusion, and MRI contrast agent development.
