Primary Academic Title:
Professor of Radiation Oncology, Division of Radiation and Cancer Biology, Washington University School of Medicine
Research Interest:
My research focuses on molecular imaging and targeted radiotherapy. Utilization of radioactive peptides that bind to tumor-selective receptors has advantages for both of these applications. My group has evaluated peptides that bind to the G-coupled protein receptors, gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR) and somatostatin receptor subtype 2 (SSTR2). We have also used somatostatin analogues to image SSTR2 after gene transfer with adenoviral vector encoding for SSTR2 (AdSSTR2).
