    JESUDOSS, J.R. 2017. The design, synthesis and evaluation of selective, non invasive imaging agents for atherosclerotic plaque. Robert Gordon University, MPhil thesis.
    The aim of this research study was the synthesis of an imaging agent, which could be used to non-invasively image atherosclerotic plaques via MRI. In order to achieve this, a library of peptide substrates designed to be ...
