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.
