Site-specific modification of proteins with radioactive technetium

Project: Research

Project Description

This project aims to develop new technology for the benign modification of proteins with the radioactive isotope technetium for nuclear imaging. The majority of techniques for incorporating radioactive isotopes into proteins, adversely influence biological behaviour and ultimately, the quality of the image. Development of the fundamental chemistry explored in this project may lead to future applications in imaging and therapy.
