Learn from senior researchers and your peers!

The SRS ThinkTank (SRS-TT) Organizing Committee invites you to join the first Summer School on Organic and Halogen Radiochemistry (CAFACHEM 2020) dedicated to State-of-Art Organic/Halogen Radiochemistry and its application in PET tracer development. CAFACHEM is an abbreviation of CArbon and Fluorine rAdioCHEMistry and is organized in collaboration with the SRS and King’s College London. CAFACHEM 2020 will be held on August 25-28, 2020 at the King’s College Waterloo Campus, which is located in the center of London and close to landmarks like the houses of parliament and London Eye.

CAFACHEM 2020 Summer School will be organized for early career scientists, technicians, PhD-students and Post-Docs that want to learn about the latest radiochemistry with organic and halogen radionuclides, e.g. 11C, 13N, 18F, 76Br, 124I and others. Application of radiotracers in preclinical and clinical imaging for neurological and oncological disease as well as drug discovery will be covered. Besides lectures from senior experts, you will have the opportunity to present your own research via an oral or poster presentation and meet with fellow researchers.
