Excited for the 2nd publication this year through collaborative efforts with Harper Cancer Research Institute’s Karen Dahl (Title: CD133 Promotes Adhesion to the Ovarian Cancer Metastatic Niche). I did the 3D confocal imaging that showed CD133+ ovarian cancer cells clearly penetrate the basal epithelial cells, pointing to metastatic potential of stem cell like cancer cells. Looking […]

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 […]
