Our lab is interested in applying molecular imaging technology to 1) understand the evolution and therapy of inflammation in atherosclerosis though serial, high-resolution imaging and 2) developed translatable, catheter-based fluorescence technology to study vascular disease in human coronary sized arteries

Active research interests include:

  1. Multimodality molecular imaging of atherothrombotic vascular disease

  2. Intravascular catheter-based fluorescence molecular imaging in preclinical models

  3. Nanotechnological therapies for atherosclerosis and thrombosis
