    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

This project’s objective is to develop novel in vivo PET probes for application as sensitive markers of neuroinflammatory processes which are key components of several pathologies, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and dementias. The project would involve organic synthesis and in vitro assays of compounds, combined with developing the radiosynthesis of the novel PET probes. Evaluation of the probes would involve in vitro radiographic methods and in vivo imaging in models of neuroinflammation using a high resolution PET scanner.
*NOTE: this projects are particularly suited to graduates in chemistry
