Lab 3B: Cancer Biomarkers, Therapeutics & Theranostics


Carry out basic and translational research studies to identify new biomarkers for cancer, to develop biomolecular systems to target, image and treat cancer cells in engineered tissue and animal models of human cancer. 

Research Focus:

  • The identification and validation of new biomarkers and biosensors for early detection of cancer in humans 
  • The development of novel drug targeting and delivery systems to treat human cancer
  • Improved methods for industrial scale production of protein and small molecule drug-based therapeutics to treat cancer.
