Eva Jakab Toth (DR1 CNRS) is expert in the design, synthesis and characterization of metal chelates related to imaging applications. After a PhD from the University of Debrecen, Hungary in lanthanide coordination chemistry, she occupied research positions at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and was appointed as CNRS research director in 2005. Since 2012, she is director of the Centre of Molecular Biophysics, CNRS UPR 4301, Orléans. She published over 140 original papers and edited “The Chemistry of Contrast Agents in Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging”, Wiley, 2001 and 2013 (2nd Ed.). She chaired the European COST Network “Metal-Based Systems for Molecular Imaging Applications”. Her recent research focuses on imaging probes to detect enzymatic activities, neurotransmitters and amyloid peptides.
