  • Translational Therapeutics

General Research Interest

My research interest is to develop multimodal non-invasive imaging tools and drug-loaded micro/nano agents for intraoperative cancer imaging, real-time therapeutic assessment, and image-guided treatment.

Research Description

Dr. Xu's research includes: (1) Ultrasound and near infrared dual-mode imaging of breast cancer (2) Multimodal microbubbles for cancer targeting and imaging (3) Heat sensitive microbubbles for cancer ablation margin imaging (4) Drug-loaded microbubbles for image-guided combinatory epigenetic therapy
