Congratulations Lina Cui

posted: Thu Sep 14 2017 16:09:29

        Please join me in congratulating Assistant Professor Lina Cui 
    on her new grant award, "Development of Diagnostic Tools for Metastatic 
    Melanoma via Imaging of Heparanase Activity", funded by the Department 
    of Defense through their Career Development Award program.  This 
    three-year grant will allow Dr. Cui and her research group to   develop 
    a PET imaging probe for heparanase, an enzyme overexpressed in 
    melanoma.  Through imaging heparanase activity it may be possible to 
    detect otherwise “invisible” but aggressive cancer lesions.
              Congratulations, Prof. Cui!
