Dr. Lenkinski grew up in Toronto, Canada where he finished his elementary school, high school and University education. After graduation from the University of Toronto, he was trained as a chemist and performed his doctoral work at the University of Houston focusing on the use of lanthanide shift reagents in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). As part of this work, he determined the mechanism of how the paramagnetic lanthanides produced so-called lanthanide induced shifts in organic solution. During a post-doctoral fellowship at the Weizmann Institute of Science, he continued to study of the effects that lanthanide ions had in aqueous solution.
