Working Group 1: Chemical Biology

This WG will help to develop and disseminate new imaging methodologies, formulations and assessment technologies by identifying the needs of biologists and health care professionals and the capabilities of chemists.

  • The development of new small molecule probes for zinc, which target specific cellular space, with a range of Kd.
  • The synthesis of zinc probes allowing the detection of zinc at specific points in biological time and space.
  • Multi-modality probes for zinc.

WG 1 Leader:  Professor Mike Watkinson, Queen Mary University London, UK
