Our research is focused on the development of new fluorescent imaging contrast agents to guide surgical removal of tumors. We have also developed instruments that could one day be used in the operating room to see these contrast agents real time. As opposed to a paint by number, this is a cut by color technology. We are also interested in developing new drug delivery systems that target tumor metabolism.
