    Research Abstract

    Novel radiolabelling strategies to develop nanoparticle assisted brain imaging will be developed. We are studying metallated beta-amyloid species as the neuropharmacological target of spermine analogues and/or new aminophosphonates indicating that these compounds may have potential as in vivo imaging agents for Alzheimer neuropathology.
