Pavitra Kannan

Postdoctoral Research Scientist, Gray Institute for Radiation Oncology and Biology

College position:

Medical imaging offers us unprecedented ways to monitor the response of tumours to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Dr Pavitra Kannan's research uses multiple imaging techniques to measure structural and functional changes within tumours during the course of treatment.

An integral part of Kannan's work involves collaborations with physicists and mathematicians in order to develop models that predict therapeutic outcome based on the acquired imaging data.
