Job description

I am a Ph.D. student in organic chemistry working for Assoc. Prof. Jørn H. Hansen. The project I'm working on is called BrainSTORM, which is centered around the application of PET chemistry in both diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, brain cancer and depression. As such, my focus is the synthesis of potential new PET tracer candidates and the labeling of compounds using radioactive isotopes.
