Scientific Interests

Dr. Peter Clark's lab focuses on the molecular imaging technology positron emission tomography (PET). The lab works on developing new PET imaging probes and assays and tries to understand the relationship between a PET image and the underlying cancer biology. The ultimate goal of the Clark lab is to develop new PET assays to better stratify patients and to predict, on an individual patient level, therapeutic responses to treatments.
