Thomas Keller

Thomas Keller is a researcher at the Radiochemistry group in the Turku PET Centre. He obtained his Masters in Chemistry from the University of Oxford in 2013. Later that year, he joined the Turku PET Centre as a PhD candidate and his thesis focused on the Radiosynthesis of [18F]F-DPA with various molar activities for the imaging of neuroinflammation. His research explores the development electrophilic and nucleophilic 18F-fluorination methodologies and their application for synthesis of PET radiopharmaceuticals.
