Camera on Cancer Research: Using Photoimmunotherapy to Fight Cancer


Dr. Choyke obtained his M.D. from Jefferson Medical College and completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Following an imaging fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, he joined the faculty of Georgetown University and soon thereafter the Diagnostic Radiology Department, Clinical Center, NIH. In June 2004, he started the Molecular Imaging Program within the Center for Cancer Research, NCI.


The vision of the MIP is to accelerate the development of new treatments for cancer using advanced imaging methods. Dr. Choyke's research interests include the translation of molecular imaging methods, such as MRI, optical and radionuclide/PET into the clinic. His research includes novel methods of detecting ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis, cancer cell receptor imaging and treatment, cell tracking, and exploration of unique animal models of cancer.
