Research Summary

Dr. Penet has a strong background in imaging mice with MR techniques. Her imaging expertise began during her Ph.D. when she performed brain imaging studies of mice infected with Plasmodium berghei ANKA, parasites that induce the murine form of cerebral malaria. As a post-doctoral fellow in Pr. Zaver Bhujwalla’s laboratory, she worked on imaging orthotopic prostate cancer models. She has also performed surgical orthotopic implantation of prostate tumor pieces in male SCID mice.
