Fadi presented at the 2022 UCLA Biomedical Research Minor Poster Symposium

Fadi presented his poster “Developing Peptide-Based Theranostic Probes Targeting the Apelin Receptor in Glioblastoma” at the 2022 UCLA Biomedical Research Minor Poster Symposium on August 18, 2022.

Pauline presented her latest results on FAP theranostics in GBM at SNMMI 2022

Pauline presented her poster “Fibroblast Activation Protein (FAP) as a Target for Radioligand Therapy in Glioblastoma” at the annual meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging held in Vancouver, Canada on June 10-15, 2022. She also got rewarded with a Poster Prize (3rd Place) in Basic and Translational Oncology!

Neurotheranostics Program: Funding from UCLA School of Medicine and Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center

We received funding from the UCLA School of Medicine and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center for Tackling Glioblastoma Using Radioligand Therapy: The UCLA Neurotheranostics Program.

The Neurotheranostics program that will bring together the knowledge of GBM biology, radioligand therapy (RLT), and design of brain-penetrant ligands and pharmacology to effectively design targeted-RLT probes for the specific treatment of GBM. The program is focused on the identification of druggable targets at the surface of GBM tumors and the development of brain-penetrant molecules for PET imaging and RLT. 

Principal Investigators: Drs. Christine E. Mona, David A. Nathanson, and Elie Besserer-Offroy.
Co-Investigators: Drs. Guiseppe Carlucci, Timothy F. Cloughesy, and Johannes Czernin.

1st Day !

Today is my first day as a Faculty, I still don’t believe it! It was a dream since I started grad school but now it’s a reality.
