COORDINATION CHEMISTRY, MOLECULAR IMAGING & THERANOSTICS
The Meade Group is located in Silverman Hall as part of Northwestern University's interdisciplinary Chemistry of Life Processes Institute. Our research focuses on inorganic coordination chemisty and it's application to biological problems, with project areas that include molecular imaging, drug design, and biosensing. The design, synthesis, and physical characterization of transition metal and lanthanide coordination complexes are the foundation of our research.
Students in our group have the opportunity to learn: organic synthesis, inorganic synthesis, X-ray crystallography, HPLC techniques, cell culture techniques, fluorescence imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, animal studies and more.
Group meetings: Thursdays, 5:00 pm, Silverman Hall 1531, CAMI Conference Room
