Jeeun Kang, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow in the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics at Johns Hopkins University, working with Dr. Emad M. Boctor. Dr. Kang is investigating new approaches of imaging early-detection of disease. The aim of the project is to develop a novel diagnostic method for early-stage ovarian cancers with these three steps:
If successful, this study will bring novel insights into the ovarian cancer research field, ultimately allowing early detection and characterization. Such information may also reveal clinical outcomes such as sensitivity, long-term survival rates for patients, and better personalized treatment regimens.
The mission of the HERA Ovarian Cancer Foundation is to eliminate ovarian cancer by promoting Health, Empowerment, Research, and Awareness.
