About Me

I am Vice Chair for Research, Chief of the Radiochemistry and Imaging Sciences Service, and Director of the Radiochemistry and Molecular Imaging Probe Core Facility. I head a laboratory in the Sloan Kettering Institute’s molecular pharmacology program and am a professor at the Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. I have published more than 200 papers, books, book chapters, and reviews on cancer imaging. I serve on grant review panels for the National Institutes of Health and National Cancer Institute and a number editorial boards.
