Innovative Radiochemistry to Advance Molecular Imaging





About the Project

The RADIOMI project (2012-2016) research objective was to pool the expertise of nine leading scientists to provide a coordinated first class training program to produce new talent and innovation in Radiochemistry for Molecular Imaging. 

The emphasis of this network was on training scientists able to develop and perform innovative radiolabeling with the short half-life positron emitting isotopes 18F (109.8 mins), 11C (20.4 mins) and 13N (10 mins). These new and improved methods were trialed in the synthesis of known and ​new radio tracers (small molecules, peptides, libraries of labeled compounds) notoriously difficult to prepare and/or to access in a pure form, with the required quality or in a reproducible manner. Preclinical evaluation was carried out on selected tracers. 

The network provided state-of-the-art training opportunities in chemistry, radiochemistry, nuclear physics, microfluidic and flow technology, pharmacology, (pre)clinical imaging (oncology, central nervous system), multimodal imaging - all key disciplines for radiopharmaceutical development and nuclear medicine, with a major impact on society’s welfare.

Key achievements: appointment of 18 fellows (15 ESR, 3 ER); gender balance target reached (>60% women); completed training in Synthesis, Catalysis, Radiochemistry, Radiopharmaceuticals, Nanotechnology, and complementary skills; various interactive collaborative secondments;  6 International Meetings, 4 Schools, 3 Workshops; 4 prizes for oral presentations and 6 prizes for posters at international symposia, 1 prestigious fellowship; published 48 scientific papers in leading international journals.
