I am a trained synthetic chemist and bioengineer who specializes in the use of novel small molecules, peptides, biomacromolecules and nanoparticles for molecularly targeted delivery. I am a faculty member in the Department of Radiology as well as a Laboratory Head in the Sloan Kettering Institute Chemical Biology Program.
My laboratory is developing and evaluating new imaging agents and radiotracers for whole-body imaging, intraoperative imaging and radiotherapy. My main focus is to selectively label malignant growths in vivo to allow for their detection, treatment, and removal. Our translational mission is taking these approaches from the bench to bedside, conducting both basic research and early phase trials, directly impacting clinical research.
