About Us


Eventhough the chemistry of labelled compounds and general interest in radiopharmacy have long tradition in the Czech republic, the education in these fields was held only at the Department of Organic and Nuclear Chemistry of the Faculty of Sciences of the Charles University in Prague. Later, the education in these fields transferred to the Department of Nuclear Chemistry of the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague. Independent research group focused in the main topic of radiopharmaceutical chemistry was founded by RNDr. J. Kozempel, Ph.D. starting on  1. January 2013, together with RNDr. M. Vlk, Ph.D., who was previously a member of the separation chemistry group at the same department (both graduated at the Faculty of Sciences of the Charles University in Prague under supervision of Doc. RNDr. Ladislav Lešetický, CSc.+). During the 2013 the new laboratory of radiopharmaceutical chemistry opened in a rebuilt space and starting from this year, many laboratory instruments and equipment were acquired. The key equipment is located in class I. and II. laboratories allowing the handling of the radioactive sources (license of the Czech Nuclear authority No.: 25408/2007). Further equipment includes:
