Biography
Francisco Alves graduated in Physics Engineering at the University of Coimbra in 1992, completed a MSc. in Biomedical Engineering in 1996 and a PhD in Biomedical Sciences in 2003 after a scholarship at the PET & Cyclotron Center in the national hospital in Copenhagen, Denmark. From 1999, he included the experts’ team that projected and implemented ICNAS - Institute for Nuclear Sciences Applied to Health of the University of Coimbra - the first research and clinical PET & Cyclotron center in Portugal, where actually leads the cyclotron research, operation and maintenance activities and coordinates the Radiation Protection Office, while being Professor at Coimbra Health School. He is member of the coordination board of Cycleur - European Network of Cyclotron Research Centers, invited lecturer at the European School of Nuclear Medicine and regularly invited as international expert for the IAEA. Author of several scientific papers, his main research interest is the production of radiometals using cyclotron liquid targets, with pioneer work in the production of clinical doses of 64Cu and 61Cu and, most notably, pharmaceutical grade 68Ga, being co-author of a patented production process.
Francisco Alves was granted the IBA-award for best scientific paper in cyclotrons in 2016.
