Dr. Goodman received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Monmouth College and his doctorate in organic chemistry from the University of Alabama. He continued his education with several post-Doctoral Fellowships from the University of Alabama, Yale University and Harvard University.
Dr. Goodman’s research interests encompass positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) radiotracer development of oncology, brain and heart agents. His research has resulted in the translation of the first reported synthetic amino alicyclic acid radio labeled with the PET radioelement fluorine-18 for imaging both intracranial tumors and prostate cancer in patients. In applied research, Dr. Goodman’s interests include the development of automated devices to facilitate the use of new radiotracers in clinical medicine.
