Primary Academic Title

Associate Professor of Radiology, Division of Radiological Chemistry and Imaging Laboratory, Washington University School of Medicine

Research Interest

Our laboratory focuses on characterizing disease on a molecular and functional level for the precise application of targeted therapies. Noninvasive imaging and ex vivo profiling provide a basis for the development and monitoring of novel mono- and combination therapy approaches in model systems that recapitulate features of advanced disease.
