Dr. Tweedle’s research focuses on the creation of new molecularly targeted pharmaceuticals that are visualized in vivo via any diagnostic imaging technologies: CT, MRI, Nuclear, Ultrasound or Light imaging. Synthetic, analytical, and radio-chemistry, and cell and small animal biology and micro imaging are practiced. The goals of most projects are targeted imaging agents that are closely enough biochemically associated with the therapy that the therapy can be patient personalized. Primary focus is on cancer with a special interest in breast, prostate and neuroendocrine cancers, particularly as targeted with peptides.
