Ronald Xu, PhD, brings a special perspective as a biomedical engineer in the Translational Therapeutics Program at the OSUCCC – James. His work focuses on ultrasound and near infrared dual-mode imaging of breast cancer, as well as on multimodal microbubbles for cancer targeting and imaging.
He is also interested in heat-sensitive microbubbles for cancer ablation margin imaging and drug-loaded microbubbles forimage-guided combinatory epigenetic therapy. One of his recent research projects provides a promising drug-delivery strategy for the combination treatment of ovarian cancer.
Dr. Xu has co-authored more than 50 articles in well-respected industry publications, such as Molecular Pharmacology, Ultrasonics Sonochemistry and Journal of Biomedical Optics. He has also shared his research in more than 50 presentations to such organizations as the Biomedical Engineering Society, SPIE Photonics West, the International Congress of Antibodies and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.
