Mentor Spotlight


James A DeCaprio, M.D.

Professor of Medicine,

Using targeted mouse models, our lab studies host cell proteins that interact with polyoma virus oncoproteins. Students will study host perturbations following the systemic administration of synthetic viral nano-complexes in order to identify novel tumor suppressors and oncogenes in Merkel cell carcinoma.


Anna Moore, Ph.D.

Professor of Radiology, HMS

Our research deals with non-invasive imaging of molecular targets in cancer. Students with have the opportunity to explore the use of targeted multimodal nanoparticles for imaging of tumor growth, metastasis, and treatment.
