28/09/2016 : RADIOMI Fellow with NRC9 Poster Award
||The RADIOMI Fellow Anna Krzyczmonik from Solin's group at the University of Turku (Finland) won a Poster Award at the Ninth International Conference on Nuclear and Radiochemistry - NRC9, held in Helsinki (Finland) earlier this month. Anja presented her research on Utilization of VUV-photons for synthesis of high specific activity [18F]F2 gas, carried out in cooperation with the RADIOMI Fellows Thomas Keller and Dr. Anna Kirjavainen, under the supervision of Dr. Sarita Forsback and Prof. Olof Solin. Congratulations, Anja!
16/08/2016 : RADIOMI Fellow on secondment meets Erasmus+ Trainee
The RADIOMI Fellow Sameer Joshi from Llop's group at Cic biomaGUNE (Spain) is visiting the University of Oxford (UK) this August. He is working on the radiosynthesis of 18F labelled compounds in cooperation with the Gouverneur group. Sameer's goal is to complete his PhD project by the end of October 2016.
The Gouverneur group is hosting also an Erasmus+ trainee - Silvia Venturi from the University of Urnibo (Italy). Silvia is an MSc student in pharmacy, interested in organic synthesis and 18F labelling for PET.
Dr. Yanlan Wang, RADIOMI experienced researcher, helps the junior members of the team.

05/07/2016 : Chemistry ITN managers present at the 1st Oxford RISN Conference 2016
The Project Managers of RADIOMI, OxIOSCR and DiStruc presented a poster at the First Research and Innovation Support Network Conference held on 5th July at the University of Oxford (UK). Dr. Pavlina Schmitz, Dr. Tracey Marr and Irini Hatzimichali showcased the EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN), currently co-ordinated by the Oxford Department of Chemistry. Forty five young researchers and over forty principle investigators, spread in academic and industrial institutions across Europe, work together in the fields of radiochemistry, cancer research and soft condensed matter. Their common goal is to achieve scientific excellence through comprehensive and state-of-the art training.

16/03/2016 : RADIOMI Fellow on Secondment - from Industry to Academia
The RADIOMI Experienced Researcher Dr. Guilia Boscutti from Camporese's group at the AAA (France), visited the Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford (UK), as part of her external training program. Giulia performed pure organic synthesis and learned more about new fluorination methods and their application to the production of relevant Positron Emission Tomography (PET) tracers.
“Carrying out research activities in a different institution, moreover - stepping from an industrial to an academic research environment, was exciting and stimulating”, said Dr. Boscutti.
