Suresh Srivastava


Telephone:  (631) 344-4459

Research Interests

  • Novel radionuclide and radiopharmaceuticals for oncologic imaging and therapy
  • Molecular contructors for gene/radioisotopic therapy
  • Suresh Srivastava’s interests are the development, testing, and clinical trials of:
    1) Sn-117m chelates for treatment of bone pain, primary/ metastatic bone cancer, and rheumatoid arthritis; and 2) Anti-angiogenic peptides, metalloproteinase inhibitors, and STTR-binding peptides, labeled with no-carrier-added Sc-47, Sn-117m, Hg-195m, and other radioisotopes, for tumor therapy. In addition, he is interested in the development of radiolabeled recombinant fusion proteins, scFv antibodies, and viral vectors as vehicles for therapy of cancer.
