Image Guided Surgery Laboratory

This laboratory effort focuses on development and clinical translation of technologies that will improve the success of surgeons to efficiently remove cancer with negative margins. The lab focuses on integrating novel optical dye technology, open field and closed system optical imaging hardware systems, and new probe development to allow for safe and successful translation to the operating room and pathology suite. We are investigating the utility of fluorescently labeled therapeutic antibodies to image subclinical disease in real time during surgery resections in a range of cancer types including head and neck, brain, and pancreatic cancer.Furthermore, we exploring barriers to drug delivery and molecular imaging of tumor response during targeted therapy in preclinical and clinical studies.
