Research Focus

My research interests are centered on the development and preclinical assessment of PET radiopharmaceuticals.

My present active research areas include the use of PET prosthetic groups for labeling peptides and oligonucleotides and the use of these constructs in molecular imaging and in particular in the development of apoptosis imaging agents.
