  • Imaging agents light up two cancer biomarkers at once to give more complete picture of tumor

    A hand holds two vials of solution, one pink and one blue.

    Researcher Indrajit Srivastava holds solutions of nanoparticles that can target two cancer biomarkers, giving off two distinct signals when lit by one fluorescent wavelength.  This could give surgeons a more complete picture of a tumor and guide operating-room decisions. In the background is a microscopic scan of a tissue sample.
