Since reporting the first peptidyl MR contrast agents, he has developed a wide spectrum of additional imaging probes for the quantitation of proteomic/genomic biomarkers. His recent research has integrated RNA interference and nanomedicine for the inhibition of cancer progression by the regulation of oncogenic mRNA and miRNA in cancer cells. He is interested in the prevention of multi-drug resistance in chemotherapy and the monitoring of physiological parameters in a non-invasive manner.
