Research Interest

Molecular imaging (SPECT, PET, chemiluminescent and bioluminescent) probes for addressing important biological questions in biomedical research. Major emphasis of our research is on the design and development of small organic molecules and peptides as SPECT/PET radiopharmaceuticals for probing the role of ABCB1 and related ATP bind cassette transporters-mediated pathways in cancer chemotherapy and progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
