Research Interests

Integration of ultrasound technologies with chemical and biomolecular engineered vesicles for diagnostic and therapeutic applications

Professor Porter’s overall goal of his research program is to push the application of ultrasound technology in new and exciting directions. Applications could include using ultrasound technology to test the growth of cancer and drug delivery through microscopic carriers.

Professor Porter’s lab is working on new ultrasound technologies and novel chemical formulations for assessing tissue perfusion, targeted contrast enhancement of diseases in ultrasound images, and improving the uptake and activity of drugs while reducing adverse side effects.
