Expertise

Current research is focused on the medical applications of Intracellular Doppler Imaging (Biodynamic Imaging-BDI) with a focus in drug discovery and personalized cancer therapy selection.


Research Interests

  • Mechanisms of connective tissue healing (ligaments and bone); electron microscopy and image analysis; novel imaging/spectral methods (motility contrast imaging/tissue dynamics spectroscopy) for tissue based drug screening and toxicology.

Current Projects Development of tissue dynamic spectroscopy for high-throughput, high-content tissue based drug screening; tissue dynamic spectroscopy as a predictor of chemotherapeutic response in ovarian cancer; tissue dynamic spectroscopy for ovum and embryo viability assessment.
