Description of Research Expertise

tumor vascular targeting, photodynamic therapy, tumor imaging, cancer pharmacology

Description of Itmat Expertise

Dr. Chen focuses on the mechanisms of photodynamic therapy in cancer treatments, particularly related to photodynamic tumor vascular targeting. He is currently investigating the mechanism of photodynamic vascular targeting for the treatment of prostate cancer and its interaction with chemotherapy or antibody therapy.
