Radiochemistry and Radiotracers for Imaging


Grant applications are sought in three new areas of radiochemistry: (1) development of new chemical reactions to overcome the synthetic constraints of working with radioisotopes at high specific activity, in order to provide more generally applicable radiolabeling techniques; (2) construction of nanoparticle platforms, for
incorporation of one or more imaging agents and targeting moieties; and (3) new automation technologies, in order to provide readily adaptable, versatile  purification techniques (e.g., microfluidics and kits) that can serve as transformational tools for radiotracer synthesis. Proposed approaches that directly advance the DOE mission will be given preference. Approaches that do not involve radionuclide imaging capability are not of interest and will be declined.
