Research Interests
The goal of my research is to explore the new PET tracers to image brain tumors. Specifically, we are looking at FDOPA, an amino acid analogue, and FLT, a marker of cell proliferation. We plan to validate these tracers in brain tumors. The goal is to ultimately be able to monitor patients on therapy with these metabolic probes.
