Dr Stephen Thompson


Stephen completed his undergraduate degrees in South Africa before moving to the University of St Andrews for a PhD with Prof. David O’Hagan. His PhD focused on radiofluorination of peptides using the fluorinase enzyme. Following this, he moved to the University of Michigan’s PET Centre for a post doc in Prof. Peter Scott’s lab, where he worked on radiofluorination methodology, development of blood pool tracers labelled with gallium-68, and the design of new PET probes for understanding neurodegenerative disease. He is currently a research associate with Prof. Aigbirhio working on the development of PET agents targeting oligomeric misfolded protein aggregates.
