I am a physician-scientist who focuses on the development of new multimodal imaging approaches for specific applications, such as sequential in vivo imaging studies in cancer biology, cancer immunotherapy, and radiation sciences.

The goal of my research is to investigate the role of dynamic gene expression imaging in tumor biology and therapy using noninvasive imaging. Specifically, my studies focus on imaging the activity of key signaling pathways involved in tumor proliferation and function influenced by tumor microenvironment. My primary aim is to develop widely applicable methods for in vivo, noninvasive monitoring of molecular-biological processes in cancer-specific cell therapies and to monitor their efficacy using multimodality molecular imaging approaches, including optical, magnetic resonance, and nuclear techniques.
