Paper highlighted in CHEMISTRY and INDUSTRY

Adele Blair's TPSO paper highlighted

SINAPSE student Adele Blair and colleagues Filip Zmuda, Gaurav Malviya, Adriana Tavares, Gilles Tamagnan, Anthony Chalmers, Deborah Dewar, Sally Pimlott and Andrew Sutherland have had their recent paper (Chem. Sci., 2015, 6, 4772) highlighted in Chemistry and Industry. Chemistry and Industry is an international magazine that reports on what it considers to be groundbreaking science. The article is about the development of a PET tracer for the translocator protein TSPO found in the outer mitochondrial membrane in organs including the brain. It is over-expressed in response to brain injury, stroke and neurodegeneration. The article can be found here.
