Background

Andrew's research is focused on developing nanosensors that can be used to non-invasively image molecular markers of disease in a clinical setting. These imaging agents will allow for more informed diagnoses, detect diseases at an earlier stage, and provide a mechanism to quantify therapeutic response. Andrew's research group has developed fluorescent probes for imaging RNA, bioluminescent probes for imaging apoptosis and proliferation, and magnetic nanoparticles for imaging cell surface receptor expression.
