The lab welcomes Hieu Nguyen, who is joinging after completing her PhD at UT Austin!
The National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering has awarded an R01 grant to our lab to continue development of single-cell tracking using PET
A study led by Kyungoh Jung was awarded a Best Poster Award at the Stanford Imaging Symposium. Congrats!
The lab is in the spolight in this week's issue of Nature, with an interview about multidisciplinary cancer research. Article +
The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has awarded a Discovery Inception grant to the lab to explore a novel metabolic labeling approach for stem cell tracking. This work is a collaboration between the labs of Dr. Pratx, Chin and Le. Full Story +
A new study by Louise Kiru uses single-cell imaging with radioluminescence microscopy to identify the true target of 18F-HFB, a PET tracer used for in vivo cell tracking. Article +
Radioluminescence microscopy is a new method for radionuclide imaging at the single cell level. This method can now be easily implemented thanks to a detailed Nature Protocol written by Tae Jin Kim and Silvan Turkcan. Article +
The Physical Oncology Lab is now located within the Grant Building, in room S277. Come and visit us!
A new study, lead by Debanti Sengupta, finds that 18F-FLT, a cancer imaging agent, is taken up differentially by cell that are actively dividing and cells that are arrested. This is the first time that the molecular behavior of 18F-FLT has been studied at the level of single cells. Full Story +
