Bio-transport Phenomena

I. CellGPS: in vivo single-cell tracking

In vivo single-cell tracking enables investigation of previously unexplored clinical questions, such as trajectory of circulating tumor cells that may lead to metastasis, fate of T-cells as immunotherapeutic agents, etc. We use pre-clinical PET (positron emission tomography) imagers to track the trajectory of a single radiolabeled cell to understand how it navigates through the blood network.

II. Thermal-fluids transport imaging in vitro 

Our work involves the use of fluorescence imaging to investigate thermal-fluid properties with high spatio-temporal resolution. We study questions on how diseases navigate through various fluidic routes in biological systems.
