The Michelle Bradbury Lab

Michelle Bradbury Lab Group

I am a clinician-scientist with experience in the application of a wide range of molecular imaging tools in both preclinical and clinical settings. At Memorial Sloan Kettering, I direct a laboratory that focuses on the development, characterization, and evaluation of translational silica nanomaterials for cancer applications. We use these materials in conjunction with imaging tools (including PET and optical devices) to individualize patient care. In addition, my team explores the biological and chemical interactions of these materials at multiple spatial scales — from the cellular/molecular level to that of organs and tissues. We then link these findings to sites of disease using whole-body imaging studies of small animal models and humans.
