Cancer Metabolism and Imaging Program
The Cancer Metabolism and Imaging Program is a collaborative group of more than 25 scientific members of the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Wake Forest University. The members represent many Departments and Sections in Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and on the Reynolda campus.
The goals of the Cancer Metabolism and Imaging Program are to determine how metabolic pathways contribute to tumor growth and therapeutic response and to develop novel imaging strategies to visualize tumors in real time.
Our research is primarily funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Funding also comes from other Institutes within the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, the American Cancer Society and the National Science Foundation. The last source of funding is from individual donations.
There are two research themes within the Cancer Metabolism and Imaging Program:
- Cellular Metabolism
- Tumor Imaging
