Statement of Purpose: The high mortality and poor prognosis for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer is mainly due to late diagnosis. Improved detection of primary tumors and recurring tumors after chemotherapy is, therefore, crucial to reduce ovarian cancer mortality and improve progression-free survival. However, current clinical screening and diagnostic imaging methods are limited by low […]

This work will be presented at MRS 2018 and at SFB 2018 Statement of Purpose: Hafnium oxide (HfO2) with a k-edge of 50 keV is being explored as a clinical X-ray contrast agent. HfO2 NPs are also in clinical trials as radiosensitizers that induce immune action against tumor sites.   However, the unpredictable stability of commercially […]

Nanoparticles (NPs) due to their size scale being 1-100 nm, are characterized by a greater surface area per unit mass than the bulk phase of the same material, which makes NPs display chemical reactivity and physical properties that approach the atomic phase. NPs derived from lanthanides (e.g. gadolinium, europium, etc.)  in particular attract a lot […]
