Curriculum vitae

Dan Peters (founder and director of DanPET AB) has more than 20 years of experience within the field of medicinal chemistry and neuroscience from NeuroSearch. While affiliated with NRU, he has been working in a EU-project with the main purpose to mature the alpha7 PET-ligand 11-C-NS14492 so it can be used in the clinic in the future. Another important purpose has been the supply and research-implementation of new ligands with relevance within the nicotinic field under the world leading research-umbrella of Professor Jens Mikkelsen.

Future collaboration between NRU and DanPET AB will include investigation of two new potential [18F] alpha7 PET-ligands (NS14552 and NS14562) as well as the supply and research implementation of new ligands of relevance within the nicotinic field, e.g. the alpha6 nicotine area.
