Corinne Beinat, PhD appointed Assistant Professor of Radiology at Stanford and newest MIPS faculty member!
The Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) is excited to announce the appointment of Dr. Corinne Beinat as Assistant Professor of Radiology and faculty member of the MIPS research division, effective February 1, 2022!
Dr. Beinat completed her PhD in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Sydney in 2014 focusing on the development of novel small molecule therapeutics for the treatment of neurological disease. She then completed her postdoctoral training with Dr. Sanjiv Sam Gambhir at Stanford University in radiochemistry and molecular imaging, focusing on the development of novel small molecule radiotracers and evaluation of biomarkers for molecular imaging of tumor biology. Recently, her promising results have been translated to the clinic and are now being studied in patients with intracranial malignancies at Stanford.
Her research will continue to study on the development of novel small molecule radiotracers for imaging and understanding of tumor biology. A large portion of her program will also focus on the development of novel theragnostic agents for diagnostic imaging and targeted radionuclide therapy of cancer. Dr. Beinat recently received an NIH R21 Pathway to Independence Award to develop a novel imaging strategy for evaluation of CAR T-Cell therapy in glioblastoma.
Congratulations and welcome, Dr. Beinat!
