Saro Armenian, D.O., M.P.H. 
Saro Armenian, D.O., M.P.H., The Norman and Sadie Lee Foundation Professor in Pediatrics and professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Population Sciences, is director of Childhood Cancer Survivorship Program. His research focuses on understanding the effect of childhood cancer on cardiovascular disease and on developing strategies for cardiovascular screening of cancer survivors.
 
Richard Ermel, D.V.M., Ph.D., M.P.V.M. 
Richard Ermel, D.V.M., Ph.D., M.P.V.M., director of Residency/Graduate Training Program in Laboratory Animal Medicine, received his Ph.D. from University of California Davis. His collaborative research includes identifying natural compounds with anti-cancer potential, new diabetic vascular disease inhibitors, and novel techniques for infectious disease detection. 
 
Yuman Fong, M.D.  
Yuman Fong, M.D., the Sangiacomo Family Chair in Surgical Oncology, profsesor and chair of the Department of Surgery, received his M.D. from Cornell University Medical College. His research is currently focusing on developing genetically engineered viruses to effectively target and destroy cancer cells, especially those that are resistant to chemo- and radiation therapies.
 
Susanta Hui, Ph.D. 
Susanta Hui, Ph.D., clinical professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology, received his Ph.D. from the University of Calcutta. The goal of his laboratory is to understand the response of bone and marrow to radiation treatment, the macro- and mirco-environment of bone and marrow in malignancy.
 
Tijana Jovanovic-Talisman, Ph.D. 
Tijana Talisman, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Molecular Medicine, received her Ph.D. from Columbia University. Her team uses pointillistic super-resolution imaging techniques that offer high spatial resolution and single-molecule sensitivity to study biological processes contributing to cancer and other diseases.
 
John Shively, Ph.D.  
John Shively, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Molecular Imaging and Therapy, received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign. One of the major focuses of his laboratory is to explore the potential of using anti-carcinoembryonic antigen antibodies to image tumor targets in vivo.
 
Anna Wu, Ph.D.  
Anna Wu, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Immunology & Theranostics, received her Ph.D. from Yale University. Her research team focuses on engineering antibodies specific to tumor antigens for developing novel imaging technology to aid in the in vivo detection of tumors.
