Scope and function:
The University of Sydney/ANSTO node is a shared facility that provides the research community with access to cyclotron based radioisotopes (18F and 11C) and radiochemistry/pre-clinical imaging technologies on a collaborative basis. The NCRIS-funded research cyclotron and associated radiochemistry hotcells are housed in the ANSTO Camperdown facility adjacent to the Brain and Mind Research Institute (BMRI) and supported by the expertise of ANSTO cyclotron engineers and radiochemists. The pre-clinical imaging platform is located in the purpose built laboratories of the BMRI and jointly operated by ANSTO and BMRI teams with long standing expertise in molecular imaging. A Platform Technology Officer funded by NCRIS supports the reserach user community through assistance with project design, project management, staff/student training and, where appropriate, data analysis.
