- Research Interests
Frédéric Dollé graduated from the University of Strasbourg, France, where he obtained his Ph.D. in organic chemistry in 1991. He then moved for two years to Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA, to work for a pharmaceutical company (Rhône-Poulenc-Rorer). After his return to France, he joined in 1993 the Life Sciences Division of the French atomic energy commission (CEA) at the Service Hospitalier Frédéric Joliot (SHFJ, Orsay – an entity today part of the CEA’s Biomedical Imaging Institute) where he was trained in radiochemistry by Dr Christian Crouzel, one of the founding fathers of radiochemistry for Positron Emission Tomography. Since 2000, he is in charge of the Chemistry and Radiochemistry section, a unit of the SHFJ supporting all PET molecular imaging programs (preclinical and clinical) within the institute. His research interests focus on the development of novel radiotracers, including macromolecules, for in vivo molecular imaging using PET, as well as the development and application of novel methods for the synthesis of carbon-11- and fluorine-18-labelled probes.
