Summary

Since coming to Duke in 2005, Ramanujam has established a lab (http://nimmi.bme.duke.edu/) that is developing and applying innovative optical strategies and technologies for cancer screening in resource-limited settings, detecting residual disease during cancer surgery, and visualizing tumor hypoxia and metabolism in the context of cancer therapy and drug discovery. She is currently working with DGHI partners at the Family Health Ministries to develop a portable, low-power spectroscopic device for screening cervical cancer in Haiti.
