The Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry Section is a multidisciplinary research and education group in the Department of Radiology. The focus of the group is the development of new radiopharmaceuticals that provide diagnostic information on various organs in normal and disease states. Current research interests include developing imaging agents for CNS receptors (dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitter systems), Aß plaque-specific agents for imaging Alzheimer's disease, and agents for tumor imaging. Major research activity comprises a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines: drug design, organic synthesis, radiochemistry, receptor pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, PET and SPECT imaging.


The research group is supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Energy.
