The Thomas Reiner Lab

My laboratory is developing and evaluating new imaging agents for whole-body imaging and intraoperative imaging. Our main focus is to selectively label malignant growths in vivo to allow for their detection, treatment, and removal. We believe that the next generation of selective imaging agents will result in better and more-sensitive detection of tumor tissues, which will ultimately benefit patient treatment.
