Research: Radiochemistry • Positron Emission Tomography

Lab Homepage: www.chem.pku.edu.cn/zliu


Research Area:


Research in the Liu group focuses on the development of novel radioactive molecules for Positron Emission Tomography (PET). We seek to discover molecular structure and activity that can contribute to interdisciplinary solutions for long-standing challenges in clinics. Our lab works on synthetic organic/bioconjugate chemistry, late-stage radiolabeling, PET imaging and mechanistic studies to persure the molecules of interest in early diagnosis, patient selection and tailored treatment.


Keywords: Radiochemistry, Chemical Biology, Positron Emission Tomography, Theranostics, Bench-to-Bedside Translation
