Sunitha B. Thakur, PhD

I am an assistant attending physicist in the Departments of Medical Physics and Radiology, where I collaborate with radiologists, neurologists, and physicists to develop and validate new magnetic resonance (MR) biomarkers to aid in the early detection of cancer, identify aggressive tumor growth, and evaluate treatment response. Specifically, I am developing biomarkers to understand the metabolism, biology, and vasculature of breast and brain tumors.
