NTeMBI Projects

NTeMBI focuses on the implementation of projects related to human health including:

  • Development and assessment of metal containing drugs for cancer treatment using radiolabelling;
  • Imaging and therapy for cancer and other diseases using radioisotopes of rhenium and technetium compounds linked to biologically active molecules;
  • Imaging as a tool in the development of drug delivery systems and new drugs –especially for tuberculosis;
  • Imaging as a tool in developing new diagnostics and drugs for infection – especially for tuberculosis;
  • Imaging brain receptors using radiolabelled compounds;
  • The use of radiolabelled receptor site targeting compounds for early detection and therapy of cancer;
  • C-14 labelling for biodistribution and pharmacokinetic studies;
  • Imaging biomarkers using radiolabels;
  • Assessing the Sterile Insect Technique for malaria mosquitoes in a South African setting;
  • Radiosensitivity in breast and cervical cancer;
