Biography

Professor William (Bill) S. Price completed both undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Sydney. He completed his PhD in 1990. His PhD work was on the development of experimental and theoretical approaches for measuring diffusion, viscosity, transport and binding of small molecules in human red blood cells using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. His supervisors were Professor Philip W. Kuchel and Dr. Bruce A. Cornell. In 2012 he was awarded a Doctor of Science degree (DSc) for a thesis entitled "Magnetic resonance studies of molecular dynamics".

Professor Price's first postdoctoral position was at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Science (IAMS) founded by the Nobel Laureate, Y. T. Lee in Taipei, Taiwan 1990-1993 with Professor Lian-Pin Hwang. At IAMS he developed advanced nuclear magnetic NMR relaxation techniques for studying molecular dynamics and also collaborated with the largest hospital in Taipei on clinical studies (hypothermia and pleural effusions).

His second postdoctoral position (1993-1995) was at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan with Prof. Kikuko Hayamizu where he investigated and developed sophisticated solid-state deuterium NMR techniques for investigating polymerization as part of a national project on the development of non-linear optical polymers. During this time Professor Price also collaborated with the Himeji Institute of Technology on the effects of hydration on phenyl ring dynamics in human insulin.

Professor Price currently holds the chair of nanotechnology in the School of Science & Health and the School of Medicine at UWS. He is the director of the Biomedical Magnetic Resonance Facility and director of the UWS node of the National Imaging Facility and he is an Adjunct Professor at the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre at Charles Sturt University and an honorary appointment in Medical Physics, Liverpool and Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centres. He leads the Nanoscale Organisation and Dynamics Research Group at UWS.

Research

Professor Price holds the chair of Nanotechnology in the School of Science and Health and the School of Medicine at the University of Western Sydney (UWS) and leads the Nanoscale Organisation and Dynamics Group at UWS. He directs the Biomedical Magnetic Resonance Facility at UWS and is also director of the UWS node of the National Imaging Facility. He is a conjoint professor at Charles Sturt University and holds and honorary appointment in Medical Physics at the Liverpool and Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centres.

Professor Price has made significant contributions to physical biochemistry, particularly in the theoretical development and applications of molecular dynamic measurements in biological and chemical systems (e.g., diffusion, cancer, protein aggregation and drug binding studies) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), relaxation and pulsed gradient spin-echo NMR measurements of translational diffusion. His research has resulted in him being awarded numerous prizes and is regularly invited to present at international conferences.

Professor Price has published a sole author book ("NMR Studies of Translational Motion", Cambridge University Press, 2009), 20 book chapters and 112 journal publications. His 1997 pedagogical paper on magnetic resonance diffusion measurements has been cited more than 500 times. He currently has a Hirsch index of 24 and almost 2700 total citations. He has been the (sole) organiser of the UWS Symposium on NMR Imaging and Diffusion which has brought a number of international and domestic experts in the field to discuss the latest advances.
