My current research is focused on the development of new chemical tools for use in molecular imaging of various cancer types. Such tools are expected to aid in the early detection of malignancies as well as offer more powerful means of monitoring and evaluating a patient’s response to different therapeutic treatments. Imaging modalities of interest include MRI, PET and fluorescence.
