Impressions of Mini-Symposium Cancer Radiotheranostics


Dr. Karuna Adhikari is officially a doctor!

We are thrilled to announce that Karuna successfully defended her PhD dissertation on January 30th, 2024!

Her groundbreaking research focused on “Design, synthesis, and evaluation of Trans-cyclooctene (TCO) and cis-dioxolane fused TCO (d-TCO) probes for bioorthogonal pretargeted PET imaging.” This innovative work has the potential to revolutionize the field of molecular imaging! ✨

Karuna’s dedication, perseverance, and brilliant mind have truly paid off. We are incredibly proud of her accomplishments and excited to see what the future holds for her!

We’re excited to announce that our recent mini-symposium on radiotheranostics was a resounding success! A big thank you to all the incredible speakers who shared their expertise and insights on this transformative field.

The symposium brought together a diverse group of researchers, clinicians, and industry professionals, fostering stimulating discussions and collaborations. We delved into the latest advancements in radiotheranostics, exploring topics like:

  • Targeted radionuclide therapies for various cancers

  • Novel radionuclides

  • Imaging and theranostic combinations

  • Future directions in the field

The energy and engagement throughout the event were truly inspiring.

A heartfelt thank you to all the participants who joined us and made this event such a valuable learning experience. We look forward to building on this momentum and pushing the boundaries of radiotheranostics together!
