Focus
Biomedical imaging plays a pivotal role in diagnosis and staging of diseases, drug discovery, characterization and validation of novel biomarkers, and guiding disease management (assessing drug efficacy, target specificity, improving prognosis, and stratification of patients). Our lab works at the interface of chemistry, medicinal chemistry, radiopharmaceutical science, biochemistry, and biology. Employing an interdisciplinary approach, we design and develop molecular imaging probes capable of interrogating important biochemical pathways across multiple disciplines. Although our research focus is not confined to any specific imaging modality, we frequently employ radiological molecular imaging, due to its high translational potential, for interrogating vital biochemical processes in cellulo and in vivo.
