Glover Lab

Welcome to the Glover Lab

Mission Statement

Dr. Glover has been active in pre-clinical research in the field of Nuclear Cardiology for over 25 years. His main research interest has been the study of the myocardial extraction and clearance kinetic properties of new radiopharmaceuticals for non-invasive imaging of myocardial perfusion and viability. The Glover lab pioneered the use of A2A adenosine receptor agonists as vasodilators for pharmacologic stress imaging. Recent work in his laboratory has been focused on the development of targeted radiolabeled probes for molecular imaging of the cardiovascular system.

Children's Hospital of Boston

Dr. David Glover continues his long lasting relationship with the Children’s Hospital of Boston who have funded his research on experimental studies in the Experimental Nuclear Cardiology Laboratory, which is part of the Robert M. Berne Cardiovascular Research Center at the University of Virginia. The project is to evaluate the myocardial first pass extraction fraction and the flow-extraction properties of the F19-labeled myocardial perfusion imaging (18F-MPI) agents over a wide range of blood flow.
