Memorial Hospital Research Laboratories
The Stephen Solomon Lab
Our lab develops new minimally invasive image-guided cancer treatments:
- Methods for improving the anti-tumor immune response after embolization or ablation.
- Genetic, imaging, and other tests to predict response after embolization or ablation.
- New devices for endoluminal ablation (ureter, bile ducts, bronchi, bowel).
- New intra-arterial therapies for liver and pancreatic cancer.
- Transgenic pig model for liver and pancreatic cancer.
- Imaging technologies for rapid diagnosis from biopsy specimens.
- Outcomes after cancer interventions.
- Evidence-based cancer imaging.
- Dr. Solomon is an interventional radiologist whose team investigates novel minimally invasive, image-guided therapies and their biologic and immunologic interactions.

We are looking for a biomedical engineer or materials scientist who can develop new minimally invasive cancer therapies, such as new materials or devices for tumor targeting and drug delivery (percutaneous or intra-arterial).
Interventional Radiology Research Fellow
Our lab has developed several new intra-arterial therapies for liver and pancreatic cancer, which we are currently testing in a pig tumor model.
Postdoctoral fellowship position: Quantitative discipline
We are currently seeking candidates for a postdoctoral fellowship position to study tumor evolution in neuroendocrine tumors.
