My areas of interest are in organic chemistry and radiochemistry, specifically fluorine-18 labeling. For over 28 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, cancer, Parkinson’s disease and infection. Currently, I am working on new PET tracers for diagnostic imaging of brain-related disorders, as well as exploring new drug development for Alzheimer’s disease treatment.
