The research in our lab focuses on developing advanced instrumentations for diagnostic medical imaging and radiation therapy utilizing the carbon nanotube based field emission x-ray source technology pioneered by our team at UNC. Our interdisciplinary and translational research team consists of a large group of students, postdoctoral fellows, staff, and collaborators with training and expertise in materials sciences, physics, biomedical engineering, radiology and radiation oncology. We also work closely with industrial partners.
Our current research projects include:
