Dr. Snyder's research interests include:

I am currently an Associate Professor in Radiology and Imaging Sciences at the Indiana University School of Medicine and serve as Director of the Molecular Imaging Ligand Development Program. MILDP designs novel radiotracers and imaging methods for positron emission tomography (PET) and produces known PET radiopharmaceuticals for clinical imaging and preclinical in vivo studies. Projects encompass a wide variety of applications including both oncology and neuroscience and involve a combination of PET radiochemistry, in vitro and in vivo evaluation of radiopharmaceutical biodistribution and pharmacokinetics, and translational studies in clinical imaging. Currnt projects include, development and translation of radioimmunoconjugates for PET based on antibodies to the GD2 ganglioside for imaging melanoma, osteosarcoma, neuroblastoma, small cell lung cancer and brain tumors; translation of [F18]MFBG (analog of [I123]MIBG) for PET imaging of neuroendocrine tumors; and design of PET radiotracers based on novel glutaminase inhibitors for imaging and to facilitate therapeutic development for breast cancer and other glutamine-dependent neoplasms.
