Biography :

Syed Ali Raza Naqvi is a radioanalytical chemist and working as an associate professor of analytical chemistry in the department of Chemistry, Government college university, Fiaslabad Pakistan; whose work has focused on the development of radiopharmaceuticals for diagnosis and therapy of neuroendocrine tumors and bacterial infections. Since neuroendocrine tumors are commonly inoperable, they require targeted therapy for treatment. For these tumors, Naqvi advanced peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) using 111In-labeled minigastrin peptides. He recently expanded his studies to include the radiolabeling of fluoroquinolone derivatives for the diagnosis of deep-seated bacterial infections. Naqvi is a principle investigator for three research projects on radiopharmaceuticals/radiodiagnostics, and he has authored a book titled Nuclear Analytical Techniques.
