Dr. Neil Vasdev will discuss “Cutting-edge Radiochemical Methods and Technologies for Human PET Imaging” at noon Nov. 13, in Room 1005 of the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology.
Vasdev is the director of Radiochemistry at Massachusetts General Hospital and is a professor in the department of radiology at Harvard Medical School. His independent radiopharmaceutical chemistry research on developing radiolabeled imaging agents, often by multistep radiochemistry reactions, is used for investigating disorders of the human brain. He has applied this technology to prepare cancer- and cardiac-imaging agents.
The Illinois-MGH Molecular Imaging Seminar Series highlights the collaboration between MGH Department of Radiology and the Center for Advanced Medical Imaging Sciences and the University of Illinois through a series of seminars provided by experts in their disciplines. Lunch will be served. The talk is free and open to the public.
