Imaging of Catabolic and Anabolic Processes for Osteoarthritis Prognosis

I did my undergraduate master's degree in Chemistry (MChem) at the University of Warwick, where I worked on radical cyclisations of N-alkenyl-N-2-bromobenzyl acetamides in my final year research project. I moved to Canada in 2012 to complete a two-year MSc in Chemistry at Western with a specialization in molecular imaging. During that time I synthesized a ghrelin-receptor specific peptidomimetic agonist for imaging of prostatic carcinoma. I presented this work at the 97th Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition (CSC) in Vancouver in 2014. Having developed a strong interest in molecular imaging, I began working as a research assistant in the Lim Lab in 2015, synthesizing a series of radiopaque peptides for the imaging of cartilage breakdown in osteoarthritis. My current research focuses on imaging catabolic and anabolic processes for osteoarthritis prognosis.
