Research Abstract

My research interests are in developing, analyzing and translating novel magnetic resonance pulse sequence paradigms, and applying novel targeted contrast agents for the goal of better means of quantifying angiogenesis and other relevant biomarkers in both cancer models, and in humans undergoing clinical trials. These interests stem from my scientific background in magnetic resonance imaging pulse sequence design and clinical background in abdominal imaging. I recently joined the Center for Molecular Imaging Research (CMIR) as a clinical investigator and a member of both the mouse imaging programs and clinical discovery programs. This has afforded me a unique opportunity and setting to apply and translate novel targeted contrast agents and to develop and translate novel pulse sequence algorithms from animal models to humans suffering with cancer.
