DESCRIPTION OF WORK / BIOSKETCH
The aims of my research is:
1) to investigate metabolic signatures for the diagnosis and prognostication
of human malignancies which may be more sensitive and specific than those
now available in clinic. 2) to establish adjunct MRS and MRI protocols that
may improve the accuracy of clinical pathology.
3) to develop linkages between ex vivo tumor evaluation and in vivo
non-invasive diagnosis with MR technologies. .
