Research description

As a chemical engineer, I enjoy translating basic science into novel biomedical technologies. I am interested in the use of molecular imaging techniques for early cancer diagnosis and for better assessing response to cancer therapy. Currently, I'm planning a first-in-human clinical trial of a novel cell death imaging agent, C2Am. This new imaging scan will enable clinicians to assess more accurately and rapidly the patient's response to cancer therapies, potentially leading to better outcomes and significant cost savings.
