  • Research interest:I currently working in radiotracer development with the purpose of using these tracers for imaging of cell death. I have experience with different radioisotopes and different radiolabeling methodologies, including Tc-99m, Ga-68 and Zr-89 using chelation, and F-18 using click radiochemistry. I also have extensive knowledge on animal models of colorectal cancer. At the moment I am developing of novel PET radiotracers that allow the readout of cell death. Development, optimization and validation of novel probes selective for the cell death process is of paramount importance in the translational research.
