amidohydrolases; biphenyl compounds; carbamates; carbon radioisotopes; fluorine radioisotopes; isotope labeling; positron-emission tomography; propanolamines; radiopharmaceuticals (Dr. Vasdev's) research focuses on developing and translating new PET imaging agents to use in various brain-based illnesses. Current targets under investigation are the tau protein, which is implicated in Alzheimer’s disease; traumatic brain injuries; brain inflammation in mental illnesses; and cell signaling pathways. Several of the radiotracers developed by his laboratory are in preclinical use worldwide, and many of these compounds have been used for first-in-human neuroimaging studies. Dr. Vasdev has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, and he has received numerous scholarly awards throughout his career.
