Research Expertise: Molecular Imaging | Targeted Therapeutics | Drug Delivery

The Tsourkas lab combines chemistry, nanotechnology, and protein engineering to create novel targeted imaging and therapeutic agents designed to improve the detection and treatment of cancer. Specific research interests include (i) developing new nanoformulations that are capable of carrying extremely high payloads of drugs, sensitizing agents, and/or contrast agents; (ii) investigating new disease targeting strategies that maximize specificity and sensitivity; and (iii) developing new bioconjugation techniques that enable the highly efficient, site-specific labeling of targeting agents for imaging and therapeutic applications.
