Qi-Huang Zheng, a Ph.D. degree holder, is an Associate Professor of radiology and imaging sciences at the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Indiana University School of Medicine, Ind, USA. His laboratory has been investigating the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of new radiopharmaceuticals (tumor, brain, and heart imaging agents) for use in the biomedical imaging technique positron emission tomography (PET) to study cancer, neuroscience, and cardiovascular diseases. His research interests range from PET radiopharmaceutical chemistry to synthetic organic chemistry. His current research activities focus on the development of novel and potent enzyme-based and/or receptor-based PET carbon-11 and fluorine-18 radiotracers for the qualitative and quantitative assessment of physiologic changes in vivo, from initial evaluation in cell and animal models to evaluation in clinical trials. He has published 300 research papers, review articles, meeting abstracts, and book chapters.
