PET Radiotracer Translation and
Resource Center

The PET Radiotracer Translation and Resource Center (PET-RTRC) is a U.S. innovation hub for the development of novel PET radiotracers. Leading the way for an international network of collaborators, the PET-RTRC seeks to expand the understanding of diseases and advance the mission of precision imaging.

Our People

The PET-RTRC is a national laboratory for the advancement of precision imaging that brings together known innovators in the field of imaging.


The PET-RTRC offers collaborative and technology research and development (TR&D) projects to advance the development of PET radiotracers. We also have service projects that provide access for our partner institutions to mature center products otherwise not available.


From radiotracers still in development to SOP’s and training for mature products, the PET-RTRC offers a wide variety of resources to support your projects.
