Dr Graeme Stasiuk
Senior Lecturer in Molecular Imaging
|Biography||Dr Graeme Stasiuk is a Senior lecturer in Molecular Imaging, and has nine years of research experience, post PhD, into the design, synthesis and development of molecular imaging agents for all modalities.
Following a year at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in Grenoble, developing multimodal nanoparticle MR/Fluorescent contrast agents, he joined Professor Nick Long's group at Imperial College London in 2011 as Post-Doctoral Research Assistant, this work was focused on multimodal and targeted imaging.
Being nominated as one of the key figures expected to shape the future of interdisciplinary research in the chemical sciences in the ChemPlusChem journal's 'Early Career Series 2017'. He is currently a holder of a Medical Research Council (MRC) award for the development of 'smart' theranostics for Stroke.
|Research Interests||Research areas include multimodal contrast agents, the combination of gadolinium based chelates/macrocycles for MRI and quantum dot nanoparticles or organic fluorophores for optical imaging and radioisotopes such as fluorine-18 and gallium-68 for PET, to create a single agent that can be used to monitor a particular disease/cellular process through various imaging techniques.|
