“Molecular Imaging in Cancer: PET Imaging Biomarkers”

The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center will host its next seminar series event Friday, Feb. 2, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Iris S. and Bert L. Wolstein Research Building auditorium.

The event will feature Jason Lewis, the Emily Tow Jackson Chair in Oncology, vice chair for research for the department of radiology, and chief of the radiochemistry and imaging sciences service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Lewis will present “Molecular Imaging in Cancer: PET Imaging Biomarkers.”

Speaker details

Lewis’ research interests are focused on the development of new molecular imaging agents and radiopharmaceuticals for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. He has worked on the development of small molecules targeting cancer, as well as radiolabeled peptides and Zr-89-labeled antibodies targeting disease-specific receptors and antigens; this is always with the ultimate goal of clinical translation.
