Ever since I began studying chemistry, I have been particularly interested in the study of various diseases.
During my bachelor's thesis, my research focused on establishing a new pre-concentration method for the detection of the pathogenic bacteria Legionella pneumophila, which causes Legionnaires' disease and Pontiac fever.
In my master's studies, my interests focused on the applications of radioactive compounds to understand, image, and treat cancer. For my master’s thesis, I synthesized and characterized a group of radiohybrid tracers for the imaging of neuroendocrine tumors.
My current research is focused on the synthesis and preclinical evaluation of peptide-based, radioactive molecular imaging agents. These tracers will allow us to identify cancer patients that are susceptible to treatment with immune checkpoint inhibition therapy.
