Research topics

  • Development of automated synthesis procedures for radiopharmaceuticals with high molar activity (Am) and quality according to GMP regulations
  • Optimising 18F-radiofluorination methods (electrophilic, transition metal mediated and nucleophilic) for simplicity and high  Am (Fig. 1)
  • Optimising target performance, 11C-labelling agent pathways and synthesis methods for simplicity, high yields and Am (Fig. 2)
