The research in our laboratory develops novel medical imaging methods to study the dynamics of molecular expression and physiological function. In our work, we integrate ultrasound and contrast-enhanced photoacoustic imaging systems, including the development of algorithms for functional and molecular photoacoustic imaging and the evaluation of photoacoustic and ultrasound contrast agents. A key focus of our imaging technology is the functional and molecular environment during compromised pregnancies and the development of birth defects. We search for new methods to treat these conditions through the knowledge gained through our functional and molecular imaging technologies.
