Scientific Interests

Dr. Neema Jamshidi's research uses multi-resolution, state-of-the-art imaging technologies spanning cellular, omic-profile and clinical cross-sectional imaging to construct predictive models of biological processes in order to understand how malignant transformations occur and how to intervene/block these processes.
