Dr. James Slater
Director, Education and Special Projects for Isotope Imaging
UCSF School of Medicine
Dr. Slater has a broad educational and work experience in radiopharmaceutical chemistry. He has been a consultant with many pharmaceutical companies and a co-investigator on many clinical trials in radiopharmaceuticals and hyperpolarized agents. His approach to PET and hyperpolarized drug production and development are based on over 30 years experience with the FDA in diagnostic and therapeutic pharmaceutical manufacturing for academics and the pharmaceutical industry. This experience includes setting up two commercial centralized radiopharmacies and two academic PET drug manufacturing facilities. He wrote and submitted four FDA approved ANDAs and wrote over a dozen chemistry manufacturing IND sections (CMC) for PET and hyperpolarized agents.
Production Process of Short-Lived Diagnostic Imaging Agents (PET, MRI)
This presentation will discuss the design of a PET facility regarding radiation safety focusing on areas of the cyclotron, synthesis, quality control, distribution of the final product and safety for patients and personnel. It will also provide an overview of facility designs in regarding work flow, personnel and patient radiation safety. The presentation will cover the manufacturing process of short-lived PET and MRI imaging agents to meet FDA criteria for approved and investigation clinical use.
