Mentor Spotlight

Omid Farokhzad, M.D.

Associate Professor of Anesthesia,

The Farokhzad group has pioneered the use of high-throughput self-assembly methods to develop novel nanomedicines. Students will focus on the design of a nanoparticle system with simultaneous diagnostic and imaging capabilities in order to help locate prostate cancer cells and study their specific characteristics.

Peter Caravan, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor in Radiology, HMS

My research broadly encompasses the design, synthesis, and application of molecular and nanoparticle-based imaging probes for detecting disease and monitoring treatment response. Students will help develop and study magnetic resonance, computed tomography, or positron emitting probes for imaging cancer.
