  • Manoj Kumar

    Manoj Kumar

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI work on imaging-guided therapy using PET and MR imaging approaches. My academic training and background is in molecular imaging. During my doctoral training, I developed and validated a PET imaging approach for evaluating endocrine therapy responses in advanced breast cancer. My current research focuses on imaging tumor immune markers and responses to cancer immunotherapy. The goal is to develop new imaging toolboxes to monitor and guide treatment. Specifically, I employ antibodies, nanoparticles, and reporter genes for imaging and combinations of therapies to modulate and restore the body's suppressed immune functions against cancer cells. This is being done in collaboration with teams of researchers in early clinical development and teams in clinical practice.
