    Dr. M. T. Jeena

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    Bio Dr. Jeena is a chemist whose research primarily focused on exploring chemical reactions inside the live cell, creating supramolecular self-assembly inside the cellular sub-compartments and organelle membrane perturbation to alter the cellular fate for applications such as cancer therapeutics, imaging, and in-depth study of cellular metabolism. At present (2021-) she is pursuing post-doctoral training under Dr. Jianghong Rao at Stanford School of Medicine. She did PhD at Ulsan National Institute of Science and technology (2013-2018, GPA 4.11/4.9, Thesis: Organelle Localization Induced Self-assembly of Amphiphilic Peptides: A Novel Strategy for Therapeutics) under prof. Ja-Hyoung Ryu. Jeena's PhD research introduced a new concept of mitochondria localized self-assembly of small molecules as a potential strategy to induce selective cancer cell death. She received MS in Applied Chemistry from Cochin University of Science and Technology, Kerala, India (2012, score ranked second in the university) and BS in Chemistry from Payyannur Collage, Kerala, India (2010, score ranked third in the university).

    Bio Immunotherapy has the potential to become the new paradigm of cancer treatment. While anatomic imaging has been the gold standard to monitor treatment efficacy based upon decreases in tumor size, patients treated with immunotherapies often present with a period of apparent tumor growth before prolonged regression. Due to the high cost and delayed response time, there exists a compelling need to accurately predict which patients are most likely to benefit from immune based treatment strategies. Aaron hopes to develop a molecular imaging toolkit including novel software, hardware, and biological wetware to improve monitoring of cancer immunotherapies in the clinic. He is advised on this project by Dr. Sam Gambhir. Aaron brings with him experience in multi-modality molecular imaging of cancer from his time spent under the mentorship of Dr. Efstathios Karathanasis and Dr. Mark Griswold at the Case Center for Imaging Research in Cleveland, Ohio. After graduating from CWRU, Aaron spent a year in Switzerland as a Fulbright Fellow at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) where, with the guidance of Dr. Melody Swartz and Dr. Jeffrey Hubbell, he utilized imaging tools to better understand the mechanisms of therapeutic cancer vaccines.
