Background and activities

I am a PhD fellow at the MR Cancer group, Department of Circulation and Medical Imaging (ISB), Faculty of Medicine (DMF). I started in my position in December 2015.

Research focus

My research of interest is metabolic profiling of prostate cancer tissue. For this purpose, I use methods which include high-resolution magic angle spinning (HR-MAS) magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry imaging, immunohistochemistry (IHC), various mRNA analysis methods and multivariate analysis. A main aim of my research is to identify metabolic and transcriptomic markers/signatures that can illuminate the cell biology of prostate cancer tissue.
