Dongfeng Pan, Ph.D.

Dr. Dongfeng Pan's research group specializes on developing novel molecular imaging materials. Non-invasive molecular imaging is a growing research discipline aimed at development of novel tools, reagents, and methods to study in vivo biologic processes at the cellular and molecular level. Dr. Pan's lab focuses on developing and testing novel imaging reagents of both modalities of near infrared (NIR) optical and nuclear imaging.
