Seminar: Synthesis of Metal Complexes to Assist in Diagnosis and Therapy

09/16/2016


Dr. Paul Donnelly, from The University of Melbourne in Australia, is conducting research to develop molecular agents that can be used in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s. In a conference organized by the MGH Gordon Center, Dr. Donnelly presented his effort to synthesize copper and technetium complexes that can bind Aβ plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Donnelly also discussed the therapeutic possibilities created by the incorporation of radioactive metal isotopes into tumor targeting peptides.
