Description of Phd:

PET and SPECT are the only truly translational technologies that can be used to study the functional activity of molecular systems in small animals and in man. They are of particular value in cancer research where they can be central in the study of basic mechanisms and drug discovery. The SINAPSE team in Glasgow has joined with the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research in acquiring a Carestream Albira trimodal micro-SPECT-PET-CT scanner [2]. This project will focus on the use of the Albira to analyze newly designed and existing molecular markers in the advanced genetic mouse models that are available at the BICR. The project will bring together the expertise of the SINAPSE lead on the project, Dr Pimlott, who has extensive experience in the development on novel tracers for SPECT and the BCRI lead, Dr Anderson, who has experience in the use of the advanced genetically modified mouse models. They will work in collaboration with Professor Welch and the SINAPSE group in Aberdeen, who also have micro-PET-CT and have experience with PET tracers. Dr Jens Waldeck, the Global Application Manager of Carestream, will advise on scanner set-up and the student will work with Carestream to optimize scanner performance.
