Daniel L.J. Thorek, PhD, is an associate professor of radiology and a principal investigator in the Precision Radiotheranostics Translation Center (PRTC) for Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, as well as a professor of biomedical engineering and radiation oncology.
Thorek’s lab is focused on the development, implementation and quantitative evaluation of diagnostic and targeted therapies. The laboratory uses computation, in vitro and preclinical tools in oncology, inflammation and infectious disease biology to complement clinical samples and observations. Using engineering principles in biotechnology, radiology and drug development, the mission of this work is to understand and advance methods that will improve patient management.
