Hi, I am doing the physical organic chemistry calculations. I am curious about
Molecular imaging and want to learn more, could I join your discussion

I am interested in the
application of computatinal chemistry in the development of molecular imaging
agents, and contrast media in general. In the past I did work on a putative MRI
contrast agent based on a Manganese Metalloporphyrin.
With the recent introduction of a new journal, 'Contrast Media',
database, MICAD, and interest group by the Society of Nuclear Medicine
(Molecular Imaging), the time seems right to identify those members of the
computational chemistry community whose interest is in the development of
molecular imaging agents and contrast media.
My interest is to exchange ideas, and see how we could promote
computational chemistry as a means to expedite the development of new molcular
imaging agents and contrast media.
It seems to me that even within the
chemistry community, this endeavor remains a small fraction of the work done by
computational chemists. It also seems relatively unknown among the larger
radiology/nuclear medicine departments that work on developing such agents.
I am sending this e-mail to the CCL community in the hopes of compiling
a list of individuals with interest in this field. If you would like to start a
special interest group (for now simple exchange of e-mail addresses), please let
Thank you for your time!
