At the interface of synthetic chemistry and radiology (or medical imaging), I have been working in the field of imaging contrast agents for 10+ years: molecular design, chemical synthesis, formulation, in vitro and in vivo comprehensive characterization of new imaging contrast agents, mainly macromolecular types, for CT and MRI (as well as for dual-energy CT namely DECT, and optical imaging) in various diseases models with various species.
In a highly multidisciplinary environment and clinically-relevant atmosphere, it has been quite fun and inspiring to experience, see, and feel how modern robust imaging modalities and technique coupled with new imaging contrast agents already can or potentially could enormously help researchers, radiologists and other physicians to improve imaging diagnosis and disease therapy evaluation and management individually, at both the preclinical and clinical levels.
Meanwhile i have been quite interested in designing and synthesizing novel molecular imaging probes to improve the understanding of biology of some diseases.
