I work at VUIIS in the Cellular and Molecular Imaging research area.


I design and engineer novel report system for apoptosis drug screening.  I also develop aptamers or peptides against tumor markers and application of aptamers or peptides in guide imaging probe(s) in the application of monitoring tumor genesis and valuating therapeutic effectiveness.
