Johannsen Editorial staff: Dr. S. Seifert FOREWORD In 2000 the Rossendorf research centre (Forschungszentrum Rossendorf, FZR; homepage http://www.fz-rossendorf.de) continued and further developed its basic and application-oriented research. Research at the Institute of Bioinorganic and Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry, one of five institutes in the Research Centre, was focused on radiotracers as molecular probes to make the human body biochemically transparent with regard to individual molecular reactions. In this respect the potential for diagnostic application depends on the quality and versatility of radiopharmaceutical chemistry, which is the main discipline in our Institute. Areas in which the Institute was particularly active were the design of new radiotracers, both radiometal-based and natural organic molecules, the elaboration of radiolabelling concepts and procedures and the chemical and pharmacological evaluation of new tracers. This was complemented by more clinically oriented activities in the Positron Emission Tomography Centre Rossendorf, which closely links the Institute with the Medical Faculty of the Dresden University of Technology. The PET Centre is manned by a joint team of staff members from both the Institute and the University Departm
