This endeavor is interwoven with the development and application of molecular imaging and spectroscopy tools to allow for better understanding of disease mechanisms (e.g., metabolism) and the monitoring of therapy responses at the molecular and functional level.
We are building a dynamic and multidisciplinary team that includes basic scientists and clinicians for translations from bench to bed and vice versa.
