Vish Subramaniam, PhD, is a member of the Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics Program at the OSUCCC – James, where he brings an engineering perspective to his research.In particular, he focuses on interactions between low-frequency electromagnetic waves and tissues and cells. This work ranges from fundamental studies to preclinical applications. Research on electrostatic interactions can be used to create new methods for detecting and imaging solid tumors as well as devising ways of controlling metastasis. One of Dr. Subramaniam’s recent projects represents the largest measurement study to date of colorectal cancer patients and indicates that the equivalent electrical conductivity for tumor tissue is significantly higher than for normal tissue. Additionally, he has co-authored numerous articles in well-respected publications, including Physiological Measurement, Scientific Reports and PLOS ONE.
