Synthesis and evaluation of novel molecular imaging probes for imaging aggregated protein structures linked with neurodegenerative diseases

Department of Clinical Neurosciences

Dr F Aigbirhio Thursday, December 03, 2020 Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

This project’s objective is to develop novel molecular imaging probes, including PET probes, that are selective to protein aggregates, which are neuropathological features of various neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemperal dementia. 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 dementia using a high resolution PET scanner.
