A coverage of our research on radiolabelling rhenium complexes, in collaboration with ANSTO, appeared in Phys.org: New method for producing PET radiotracers in higher radiochemical yields.



Congratulation to Mitch Klenner for being awarded the best oral presentation at the Innovation in Radiation Applications (IRA) 2017 International Conference in Wollongong, with his talk titled “Complexation with Rhenium(I) Allows Radiofluorination of a Target Ligand without the need for Preliminary Azeotropic Distillation“.


Our work on investigating rhenium complexes in cells with X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy featured in the cover for the special issue of Metallomics “Imaging Metals in Biology”.
