Technetium and Copper Complexes for Diagnostic Imaging of Neurodegeneration
Grant number: DP160100288 | Funding period: 2016 - 2019
This project aims to develop new synthetic coordination chemistry for making metal complexes to assist in the diagnosis of neurodegeneration. The focus will be on the design and synthesis of new copper and technetium complexes designed to have the desirable properties to be of use as tracers for molecular imaging. The project aims to lead to fundamental advances in inorganic chemistry and the synthesis of metal complexes designed for biological applications.
