The Stephen Solomon Lab

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.
