The first Summer School on Organic and Halogen Radiochemistry (CAFACHEM 2020), organised by the Society of Radiopharmaceutical Sciences ThinkTank (SRS-TT), is dedicated to State-of-Art Organic/Halogen Radiochemistry and its application in PET tracer development.

CAFACHEM 2020 Summer School has been developed primarily for early career scientists, technicians, PhD students and Post-Docs who want to learn about the latest radiochemistry with organic and halogen radionuclides, e.g. 11C, 13N, 18F, 76Br, 124I and others. Application of radiotracers in preclinical and clinical imaging for neurological and oncological disease as well as drug discovery will be covered. Besides lectures from senior experts, you will have the opportunity to present your own research via an oral or poster presentation and meet with fellow researchers.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Halogen Radiochemistry, Matthew Tredwell, PhD, Cardiff Univ. School of Medicine, UK
  • Carbon-11 & Nitrogen-13 Chemistry, Peter J.H. Scott, PhD, University of Michigan, USA
  • Therapeutic Halogen Radionuclides, François Guérard, PhD, University of Nantes, France
  • Radiotracer Design, Antony Gee, PhD, Kings College London, UK
  • Nuclide Production & Radionuclide Target Chemistry, Speaker to be announced

Workshops:

Radiosynthesis Automation: This workshop will focus on how we can automate a radiosynthetic procedure for tracer production. We will start with a small lecture on automation in general. Then you continue in smaller groups where you will learn to program an automated synthesis sequence on one of the available synthesis modules. At the end of the workshop the programs will be tested on the synthesis modules to see if they are successful.

In Vitro and In Vivo PET Tracer Evaluation: This workshop is on the evaluation of a known PET tracer. You will work in small groups and be asked to analyze the raw data (in vitro / in vivo) of a given dataset. You will present your results and interpretation of the data at the end of the workshop to conclude if the tracer should be used for further investigations.

PET Tracer Development from Scratch: In this workshop you will work in small groups on the design of a novel PET tracer. You have to design a radiosynthesis for a given molecule including a way to synthesize the required precursor. At the end of the workshop you will present, with your group, the proposed radiolabeling and how you would synthesize the precursor.
