Diagnostic & Imaging Technology

Saro Armenian, D.O., M.P.H. 
Dr. Armenian, Associate Professor at the Department of Pediatrics and Population Sciences, is the Director of Childhood Cancer Survivorship Clinic. Dr. Armenian’s research focuses on understanding the effect of childhood cancer on cardiovascular disease and on developing strategies for cardiovascular screening of cancer survivors. 
 
Ammar Chaudhry, M.D. 
Dr. Chaudhry, Assistant Clinical Professor at the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, received his MD from University of South Florida College of Medicine and completed his training at the Johns Hopkins Department of Radiology. Dr. Chaudhry’s research focus is on development and translation of noninvasive biomedical imaging technologies to improve diagnosis and treatment of cancer, metabolic and inflammatory disorders.
 
Richard Ermel, D.V.M., M.P.V.M., Ph.D., D.A.C.L.A.M. 
Dr. Ermel, Director of Residency/Graduate Training Program in Laboratory Animal Medicine, received his PhD from UC 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.  
Dr. Fong, Chair and Professor at The Department of Surgery, received his MD from Cornell University Medical College. Dr. Fong's 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., D.A.B.R. 
Dr. Hui, Clinical Professor at the Department of Radiation Oncology and the Director of Small Animal Imaging Core, received his PhD from 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. 
 
Jeremy Jones, Ph.D. 
Dr. Jones, Associate Research Professor at the Department of Medical Oncology and Therapeutics Research, received his PhD from Stanford University School of Medicine. His lab is pursuing a variety of approaches, including new androgen receptor inhibitor development, to attenuate the impact of prostate, kidney and bladder cancers. 
 
Tijana Jovanovic-Talisman, Ph.D. 
Dr. Talisman, Assistant Professor at the Department of Molecular Medicine, received her PhD 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.  
Dr. Shively, Professor at the Department of Molecular Imaging and Therapy, received his PhD from University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign. One of the major focuses of Dr. Shively's laboratory is to explore the potential of using anti-carcinoembryonic antigen antibodies to image tumor targets in vivo.
 
Anna Wu, Ph.D.  
Dr. Wu, Professor and Chair of the Department of Molecular Imaging and Therapy, received her PhD from Yale University.  Dr. Wu's research team focuses on engineering antibodies specific to tumor antigens for developing novel imaging technology to aid in the in vivo detection of tumors.
