The focus of my research is the design and synthesis of molecular imaging probes for MRI and PET. Current projects include:

  1. Development of new molecular probes for imaging fibrin;
  2. Development of new F-18 labeled PET tracers with improved pharmacological properties for imaging mGluR4, which will be characterized in preclinical models of Parkinson's disease;
  3. Development of F-18 labeled PET ligands for imaging mGluR2, which will be studied in preclinical models of Alzheimers disease and schizophrenia.
