The University of Queensland, presents:

Fluorine-18 for Labeling Small Molecules to Large Molecules for In Vivo PET Imaging

Fluorine-18 is the most frequently used radioisotope in positron emission tomography (PET) in both clinical and preclinical research. Its physical and nuclear characteristics (97% β+ decay, 109.7 min half-life, 635 keV positron energy), along with ease of large scale production (~370 GBq/batch) with high specific activity, make it an attractive nuclide for radiochemical labeling and molecular imaging. The first part of this lecture will deal with development of 18F-labeled small molecule for imaging brain cannabinoid 2 receptor (CB2R), with emphasis to imaging neuroinflammation. The second part will discuss new methods for 18F-labeling of peptides and biomolecules.
