Radiochemistry Core

The principle focus of the Radiochemistry Core is to provide investigators access to new and existing molecular imaging agents, which can be detected by Positron Emission Tomography (PET), for their research programs. The core synthesizes targeted radioimaging agents which give greater specificity than the widely used fluoro-D-glucose (FDG). Core director Kiel Neumann can suggest reagents for specific research projects. Another area of service is custom synthesis of small organic molecules for HPLC standards, precursors for radiochemicals and compounds for other research use.
