Alexey Kostikov received his M.Sc. degree in Chemistry from the Saint-Petersburg State University (Russia) in 2001 and completed his PhD in Chemistry at the University of Georgia (US) in 2007. After his first postdoctoral appointment at Syracuse University (US), he joined the Montreal Neurological Institute in 2009 as a Research Associate and later became an Assistant Professor of radiochemistry. His current research projects are focused on the development of novel positron emission tomography (PET) radiotracers for in vivo imaging of unexplored neurological biomarkers and improving the efficiency of radiolabeling procedures. Kostikov uses a microPET camera for carrying out pre-clinical imaging and in 2017 was appointed director of the microPET unit. He is also heavily involved in day-to-day operations of the PET/cyclotron core facility that is offering an extensive library of PET radiotracers to the neuroscience research community at McGill and across the province of Quebec.
