Journal Article
Yap, S. Y., Price, T. W., Savoie, H., Boyle, R. W., & Stasiuk, G. J. (2018). Selective radiolabelling with 68Ga under mild conditions: a route towards a porphyrin PET/PDT theranostic agent. Chemical communications : Chem comm / the Royal Society of Chemistry, 54(57), 7952-7954. https://doi.org/10.1039/c8cc03897j

A theranostic conjugate for use as a positron emission tomography (PET) radiotracer and as a photosensitiser for photodynamic therapy (PDT) has been synthesised. A water-soluble porphyrin was coupled with the bifunctional chelate, H4Dpaa.ga. This con... Read More

Dual-modal SERS/fluorescence AuNP probe for mitochondrial imaging (2017)
Journal Article

A novel SERS/fluorescent multimodal imaging probe for mitochondria has been synthesised using 12 nm diameter gold nanoparticles (AuNP) surface functionalised with a rhodamine thiol derivative ligand. The normal pH dependant acidic fluorescence of the... Read More

Current advances in ligand design for inorganic positron emission tomography tracers ⁶⁸Ga, ⁶⁴Cu, ⁸⁹Zr and ⁴⁴Sc (2016)
Journal Article
Price, T. W., Greenman, J., & Stasiuk, G. J. (2016). Current advances in ligand design for inorganic positron emission tomography tracers ⁶⁸Ga, ⁶⁴Cu, ⁸⁹Zr and ⁴⁴Sc. Dalton transactions : an international journal of inorganic chemistry / RSoC, 45(40), 15702-15724. https://doi.org/10.1039/c5dt04706d

A key part of the development of metal based Positron Emission Tomography probes is the chelation of the radiometal. In this review the recent developments in the chelation of four positron emitting radiometals, 68Ga, 64Cu, 89Zr and 44Sc, are explore... Read More
