My research mainly focuses on the chemical synthesis of molecular probes for measuring oxygenation in vitro or in vivo and the targeting of these probes toward specific types of tumors. The goal is to improve our understanding of tumor oxygenation and how it affects treatment outcomes.
Sam Osseiran
Graduate Student
My research involves non-invasive investigation of melanoma pathogenesis using nonlinear optical techniques. This includes using multiphoton fluorescence, second harmonic generation, and coherent Raman scattering to assess oxidative stress, identify skin microstructure, and target specific molecular biomarkers. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, and as such, identification of risk factors and markers for earlier diagnosis are instrumental to reducing mortality and increasing overall patient well-being.
Emmanouil Rousakis, PhD
Research Fellow
My current research focuses on the development of brightly phosphorescent, oxygen-sensitive probes for imaging tissue perfusion and oxygenation status non-invasively, as well as the development of cell-permeable analogues for visualizing hypoxia and monitoring treatment response in vitro in complex tumor models.
