  • understand how a new radiopharmaceutical is designed, synthesized and preclinically tested
  • get to know on the similarities and differences in radiopharmaceuticals for oncologic and neurologic purposes
  • learn planning, performing and analysing preclinical studies
  • understand the capabilities & limitations of animal models
  • acquire practically applicable knowledge on the procedures for regulatory requirements
  • establish understanding on the need to move forward with the radiopharmaceutical after the initial first-in-human study
