Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Centre for Probe Development and Commercialization (CPDC) at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, will work together to create novel molecular probes for non-invasive imaging in cancer research, drug development and patient care. The two leading organizations will form an International Probe Development Consortium (IPDC) to enable and support their collaboration.
Radiopharmaceuticals are a special class of drugs. They’re sometimes called molecular imaging probes, contrast agents, tracers or radiotherapeutics.
Radiopharmaceuticals contain a radioactive isotope and they are used to both diagnose and treat disease. Millions of patients receive radiopharmaceuticals annually for a wide variety of medical procedures ranging from the assessment of cardiac function to staging and treatment of cancer.
FACIT and Fusion Pharmaceuticals (“Fusion”) announced an investment to support the development of Fusion’s radiopharmaceutical FPX-01 for the treatment of cancer.
CPDC is always looking for exceptional people to strengthen our team.
