Title: Capture, Excite, Release: Towards the Development of the Next Generation of Metal-based Medicines
Abstract: Stable and radioactive metal ions possess attractive properties for biomedical imaging and therapy. Our lab applies a cross-disciplinary approach that combines physical inorganic chemistry, coordination chemistry, chemical biology and preclinical imaging to transform into tools for non-invasive diagnostic imaging, optical probes for image-guided surgical resection and targeted radiotherapy of cancers. This presentation will introduce the concept and validation of 1) self-illuminated optical probes and 2) photochemical/thermally activated isotope capture and release systems for the synthesis of radiopharmaceuticals.
