He holds, as inventor and/or as co-inventor, seven patents (five of which are in PET chemistry) and is the author of several abstracts/presentations in international congresses.
Vincent Tadino received his PhD, cum laude, in Organic Chemistry at the University of LiÃ¨ge, Belgium, in 1996, and completed a PostDoc research in Organic Chemistry at ISMRA in Caen, France. He was the first to develop a fully automated chemistry of [18F] Fluoro-Choline for a disposable cassette system. He also made several developments for FLT, MPPF and PiB (Pittsburg compound B for Alzheimer diagnostic) tracers.
Through the several Marketing Authorizations (MA), Mutual Recognition Procedures (MRP) and Quality Assurance (QA) manuals drafted for various GMP production facilities in Europe and the U.S., Vincent Tadino is a recognized expert in international regulations for radiopharmaceutical production.
