Intraoperative Imaging

James P. Basilion, PhD
Case Western Reserve University; Cleveland, OH

Research Interests:

  • Molecular imaging for identification of tumor margins
  • Gold nanoparticles for imaging and drug delivery
  • Quenched activity-based optical imaging probes
  • Targeted Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT)

Our laboratory concentrates on research related to the development and application of Molecular Imaging technologies, with specific focus on designing novel tools to image individual and multiple molecular markers of disease thereby increasing the sensitivity and specificity of medical imaging. We are also developing new uses of molecular imaging to define tumor margins during surgery and as theranostic tools to identify cancer for conventional surgical removal followed by PDT ablation of tissue not amenable to surgery.
