Personal profile


A central objective of my research is to develop imaging techniques to better understand the underlying mechanisms of different disease progression and the impact of therapy. My research is based on the combination of novel enzymatic and chemical modification techniques for recombinant antibodies. Using the bacterial transpeptidase sortase and click chemistry for imaging and drug delivery, I am progressing novel theranostic agents towards clinical use for the benefit of patients. I have established and currently head a NanoPET/CT preclinical imaging facility at AMREP.
