This meeting is an opportunity for researchers in Scotland to present their work on PET and SPECT chemistry and tracer development. The meeting will provide an opportunity for science to be discussed in an open environment with the aim of facilitating knowledge transfer and stimulating further collaborations between SINAPSE groups and industry. The implementation of research into the clinical environment will be critical and we shall discuss strategies for the translation of our pre-clinical research.
