Anthony Ku

Hi everyone! My name is Anthony Ku and I’m from Toronto, Canada. I completed my B.Sc in radiation sciences followed by my Ph.D in pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Toronto.

As a postdoctoral fellow of the molecular imaging program at Stanford, I am developing an immunoPET strategy for immunotherapy.
