Smart Medical Imaging

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training

I recently completed an integrated Master’s course in Chemistry at Cardiff University. My final year project involved the development of functionalised iron oxide nanoparticles for dual modality MRI and PET imaging. This sparked an interest in medical imaging and in particular, the chemistry involved in the formulation of medical imaging probes. I hope to further my understanding of this area of research throughout my years as a PhD student.
