My areas of interest are in organic chemistry and radiochemistry, specifically fluorine-18 labeling. For over twenty years, I have been designing and synthesizing novel PET radiopharmaceuticals for diagnostic imaging of cardiac metabolism, blood flow, mitochondrial function, atherosclerotic plaque, Alzheimer’s disease, tumors, Parkinson’s disease and infection. Currently, I am working on new labeling methodologies for PET tracers, as well as preparing new drugs for Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis and treatment.
