Research routines are preclinical oriented with use of

* Short lived positron emitting radionuclide such as [11C] ,[18F] & [68Ga]
* Long lived SPECT radionuclides such as [99mTc], [111In] & [177Lu]
* Human islets and cancer cell lines of pancreatic origin.
* Autoradiography
* Small animal models
* In vivo imaging in small animals with PET, SPECT, CT and MR
* Image analysis using software’s such as PMOD, AMIRA, AMIDE and Image J.
