Dr Jung Sun YOO

Email: jungsun.yoo@polyu.edu.hk  

 

Dr.Yoo's group focuses on development of in vivo imaging techniques using the power of light to revolutionize clinical practice in cancer diagnosis. We are interested in development of novel fluorescence molecular imaging technologies and multimodal imaging strategies for intraoperative guidance, diagnosis, and prognostication of cancer. Current projects include development of spectral reflectance imaging system to visualize peripheral nerves during cancer surgry and single cell resolution pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic imaging of nanomedicine to treat cancer.
