Laurent B

Laurent graduated in Chemical Sciences from the University of Liège (Belgium) in 2000. Including a final year project, under the supervision of Professor Andre Luxen, on the radiosynthesis of [11C]benzophenone from [11C]CO in a palladium-mediated labelling reaction between an iodonium salt and an organotin compound.

Supported by a funding from Lafon (France), Laurent did a PhD on [11C]CO radiochemistry where he developed a semi-automated system for carbonylation reactions for the production of [11C]-labelled ketones, esters and amides from [11C]CO. During this time he also established a five steps radiosynthesis of [11C]modafinil from [11C]benzophenone.
Shortly after his PhD, Laurent joined Dr John Clark’s group at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre to work under the supervision of Professor Franklin Aigbirhio in the MICL.
