Radio-metal Probes

 

Our radio-metals research team access and utilise a diverse set of radioisotopes for both applied and fundamental research projects. These currently include 67Ga/68Ga, 64Cu, 99mTc, 111In, 57Co, 89Zr and 177Lu. In the near future 86Y and 90Nb will be added to our suite of research isotopes.


Applied activities focus on the radiolabelling of key biomolecules, including proteins, peptides, antibodies and even cells, either directly with the radio-metal or via a metal-chelate complex.


Our fundamental research involves exploration of new 'exotic' radio-metals and developing the next generation of ligands for radio-metal complexation to be used in diagnosis and therapeutic applications.


Dr Ivan Greguric is supported by Dr Nigel Lengkeek, Radio-metals theme leader, and Dr Ben Fraser, Organic Chemistry task leader.
