    Instructor, Neurosurgery

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Zhou has made substantial contributions to the field of biomedical engineering. Dr. Zhou conducts her research on a highly specialized area focusing on molecular imaging, which has applications in biomedical imaging and clinical oncology. Dr. Zhou’s research addresses some of the nation’s most pressing issues related to the development of effective biomedical imaging approaches for accurate diagnosis of prevalent human diseases and improving effectiveness of their treatment. Her innovations in biomedical imaging technology are important for detection and management of deadly diseases including brain, head-and-neck, pancreatic, liver and colorectal cancers as well as cardiovascular sclerosis. Her strong background in biological sciences and biomedical engineering as well as her experience in both translational and clinical research have helped her develop multiple disease-specific molecular probes and miniature imaging devices for image-guided surgery of cancers and cardiovascular plaque detection.

    Dr. Zhou’s research has led to emergence of novel solutions and opportunities, in particular, for molecular imaging of cancer and other diseases, for discovering, leveraging and integration of cancer biomarker and tumor microenvironment information, and for novel approaches to acquire real-time high-resolution contrast enhanced cancer visualization and optimization based on imaging depth, quality and speed. Dr. Zhou has been able to formulate the involved clinical and biological problems into biomedical engineering frameworks and find ways to exploit a variety of modern techniques and approaches from photoacoustic imaging, fluorescence-guided surgery, micro-electromechanical systems and biomedical instrumentation in developing elegant and effective solutions. Her work in the Neurosurgery Department and Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford involves research related to developing tumor-specific molecular probes, advanced imaging methods and therapeutic delivery systems for adult and pediatric patients with malignant brain cancers to improve margin detection, enhance resection accuracy, and improve treatment outcome.
