Curriculum vitae

Scientific interests

My primary focus of interest is PET imaging of Alpha-Synuclein for preclinical evalution. Currently, with no radiotracer available; an imaging model of the brain is a highly necessary. Establishing this model for the evaluation of potential radiotracers against Alpha-Synuclein will be my intent. My curiosity behind mechanism of crossing the blood brain barrier got to neuroscience in the first place. My interests also lie in brain mapping and scouting the long-term effect and pathophysiology of Alpha-Synuclein and Parkinson’s disease.
