Tackling Prostate Cancer with Innovative Imaging Techniques

For John Kurhanewicz, PhD, and other researchers at UCSF, it’s important to work in an environment that not only supports their research, but provides the funding necessary for equipment and technological resources. “I feel very lucky to be at an institution that has a breadth of resources, the talented students and staff, the industrial collaborations that truly allows somebody, like myself, to take a technique, a new imaging technique, from the benchtop all the way into routine clinical practice,” explains Dr. Kurhanewicz.

Dr. Kurhanewicz is a professor in residence in the Departments of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging, Urology and Pharmaceutical Chemistry at UCSF, and director of the UCSF Body Research Interest Group, the Biomedical NMR Lab, and the Kurhanewicz Laboratory at UCSF.

In this interview, Dr. Kurhanewicz discusses the advancements UCSF has made in innovative imaging techniques that directly aide him in his research in the area of prostate cancer to help men from the beginning of their diagnosis.
