Research in my lab focuses on developing novel small molecule PET tracers labeled with fluorine-18 and carbon-11. Some of the projects include:

  • Developing PET radioligands for K+ channels in the brain to image demyelinating diseases
  • Developing PET radioligands for Ca2+ channels in the brain to image pain and seizure disorders
  • Developing a non-covalent pretargeting approach to immunoPET
  • Investigating new fluorine-18 and carbon-11 labeling chemistry
