Research focus

My research focus is in intraperitoneal drug delivery for peritoneal cancer, and I use different rodent models to study how the treatment variables and the properties of the tumor microenvironment affect drug transport from the peritoneal cavity into the tumor tissue.
I want to join forces and aim to establish a method to use DCE-MRI combined with CFD modeling to estimate tumor IFP, initially in animal models, but I am planning clinical studies as well. DCE-MRI is a relatively novel field and I am now trying to establish the ideal method to extract relevant parameters from the imaging data, among the variety of methods that have been published (Tofts model, Patlak plots, SI curves,…).
