Conceptual Schematic

THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
Can we detect cardiovascular diseases and cancer using ultrasound molecular imaging?
Can we treat cardiovascular diseases and cancer with ultrasound assisted gene or drug delivery?
What are the mechanisms of action for ultrasound microbubble-mediated therapy?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
Ultrasound microbubble mediated molecular imaging
Ultrasound microbubble mediated therapy
Drug and gene delivery
Microbubble dynamics
Ultrasound bioeffects

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:

Targeted ultrasound molecular imaging
Ultra-high-speed imaging
Confocal live cell imaging
Microbubble and phase transition dynamics
Microvascular obstruction (in vitro and in vivo models)
