Patrick Carberry, PhD

Profile Headshot


Patrick is a radiochemist, who specializes in the development of carbon-11 and fluorine-18 PET radiotracers. He has experience in the field of synthetic organic chemistry, radiochemistry, medicinal chemistry, radiopharmaceuticals, and organometallic catalysis. Patrick has been involved with radiolabeling novel agents and evaluating their potential for imaging human pathophysiology since 2009. He received his postdoctoral training under the guidance of Professor Hank Kung at the University of Pennsylvania (2009-2011), where he synthesized novel radiopharmaceuticals for preclinical development. In 2011, Patrick joined the Kreitchman PET Center at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. He plays an active role in the development of new radiotracers as well as a member of the production team. His research interests include the radiolabeling of small peptides and proteins with carbon-11 and fluorine-18 nuclides to be evaluated as potential PET imaging agents.
