As a synthetic organic chemist, I’m interested in synthesizing small molecule probes that can interact with neuroreceptors, such as the dopamine transporter. In particular, my group is involved in the synthesis of a new class of molecular imaging agents that should be able to provide high-resolution three-dimensional images of the intact brain via hyperpolarized xenon-129 MRI.
