Current Research and Scholarly Interests


I am interested in tumor immunology (as part of a career in hematology-oncology) and am currently involved in a translational project investigating a non-invasive method of identifying tumor associated macrophages (TAMs) in pediatric sarcomas. For this purpose, we use ferumoxytol, an iron nano-particle, off label as a contrast agent for MRI based on pre-clinical studies showing successful use of this technique. I also work with osteosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma cell lines in vitro to demonstrate negligible ferumoxytol uptake when compared with TAMs (M2 macrophages) using MRI, ICP-Mass Spectrometry and Staining methods.
