Development of novel Positron Emission Tomography (PET) radiotracers to study the biological processes that are characteristic of tumour cells.
Development, validation and/or qualification of existing PET radiotracers so that they can be used as predictive, prognostic, pharmacological and/or surrogate response biomarkers in oncology patients.
Current projects involve tracers to study cell proliferation, hypoxia and angiogenesis.
