Abstract

The LARAMED project, acronym for LAboratory of RAdioisotopes for MEDicine, is the new research infrastructure being established at the Legnaro National Laboratories (LNL), focused on the production of novel medical radionuclides, actually unavailable for the scientific community. This work presents the recent advancements of the LARAMED laboratories and bunkers in the SPES facility, where the 70-MeV high current proton cyclotron was installed in 2015 to perform not only fundamental nuclear physics studies but also research activities related to medical applications. The latest research outcomes on the production of the theranostic 67Cu and 47Sc radionuclides, obtained thanks to the Italian and international LARAMED network, are also summarized.
