Research Abstract

My research interests include the development of novel high resolution molecular imaging systems, tools for early cancer detection, new and more advanced nanomaterials for imaging, and modeling methods for systems analysis. Increasingly, our work has been focused on reconciling the gap that exists between traditional cell biology and human biology. His work on imaging, nanomaterials and miniaturized chips has already led to a number of advanced clinical trials. When these techniques become routinely available, they are anticipated to have a major impact on clinical practice.
