Assistant Professor of Radiology at Mayo Clinic Rochester The research of Mukesh K. Pandey, Ph.D., focuses on design, synthesis and development of molecular imaging probes to understand diseases and biological pathways at a cellular level. This noninvasive approach helps to understand, detect and monitor pathological conditions. The molecular imaging probe development requires multistep organic synthesis, radio synthesis and evaluations in various animal models. Successful agents will be translated to the clinical application through clinical research trials. Learning more about diseases and pathways provides an appropriate choice to regulate and manipulate cellular processes by using existing or new pharmaceuticals of choice.
