Giancarlo Pascali
Giancarlo Pascali
UNSW Facility Fellow
Giancarlo is an internationally renowned leader in radiopharmaceutical sciences, in particular, for the research and development of new tracers, radiochemical methods and automation strategies.
Dr Giancarlo Pascali graduated from University of Pisa (Italy) in 2001 with a thesis on 18F and has since then performed research activities in the PET radiochemistry field. After obtaining his PhD under the supervision of P.A. Salvadori (IFC-CNR, Italy) and W. Eckelman (NIH, USA), he has worked both in research and commercial realities, in different European countries, still focusing on the development of novel PET radiopharmaceuticals. He joined ANSTO (Sydney, Australia) as Radiochemistry Team Leader in 2013; while still part of ANSTO, he has taken a position as Principal Radiopharmaceutical Scientist at the Prince of Wales Hospital and Conjoint Associate Professor at School of Chemistry (UNSW), in order to further increase efficient translational pathways. He is also an active member and Board component of several professional associations in the field of Chemistry, Radiopharmaceuticals and Molecular Imaging.
Giancarlo expertise spans from radiolabelling methods, radiopharmaceutical design and optimization, imaging techniques, production regulations (GMP) and automation approaches. In this last field, he represents one of the pioneers in using microfluidic systems in radiochemical processes and still investigates in this field
His current interests are directed towards improving the access of better radioactive diagnostics and therapeutics to a wider population, by studying new molecules, inventing new methods and devising new instruments.
