Pete is a Nottingham Research Fellow within the Precision Imaging Beacon. He will be developing new platforms for molecular imaging of central nervous system disorders, with a focus towards neurodegeneration. His approach will utilize a combination of strategies including new imaging methodologies, contrast agent design for targeting and reporting on disease markers, and improving brain delivery of agents.
Before joining the University of Nottingham, Pete was on a Wellcome Trust-MIT Postdoctoral Fellowship, working on molecular fMRI with Prof Alan Jasanoff within the Department of Biological Engineering at MIT. Prior to that, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Manchester and completed his undergraduate and PhD studies at Durham University where his thesis focused on paramagnetically-enhanced 1H and 19F chemical shift imaging.
