Ji-Xin Cheng, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Ji-Xin Cheng is devoted to highly interdisciplinary research that advances the potential of ex-vivo and in-vivo nonlinear optical imaging in mechanistic understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. By imaging tumor-stroma interactions in diet-induced-obesity rats bearing methylnitrosourea-induced mammary tumor, Cheng is poised to unravel molecular mechanisms linking high-fat diet with breast cancer risk.
