Dr. Koutcher’s primary research interests are the applications of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging to enhance the therapeutic gain of different antineoplastic modalities. The laboratory program is diverse, with studies that range from cells and mice to patients. The laboratory supports a core facility providing high spatial resolution imaging of small animals (mice and rats) for detection, quantification, and evaluation of response of tumors. Spatial resolution on the new spectrometers is expected to be approximately 100u in each dimension.
