WELCOME TO MIRA
at THE INSTITUTE FOR QUANTITATIVE HEALTH SCIENCE & ENGINEERING @MSU
WE ARE HIRING
The MIRA laboratory (Molecular Imaging and Radiotherapy Lab) is seeking graduate and undergraduate students, research assistants, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scholars to lead research efforts at the intersection of molecular imaging, targeted radionuclide therapy, and cancer immunology.
ABOUT THE PI
Dr. Carolina de Aguiar Ferreira has received a PharmD, an M.Sc. in Material and Nuclear Sciences, and a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering, without losing focus on what made her interested in research in the first place: making people’s lives better. Dr. Carolina Ferreira has published more than 40 peer-reviewed articles in high-impact journals and won three Young Investigator Awards from the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), and made the SNMMI’s “Ones to Watch” list in 2021.
WHAT WE DO
We focus on the use of radiation as a solution for healthcare problems. We utilize radiolabeled compounds for non-invasive detection of diseases and the immune system as well as for cancer therapy and modulation of the immune system.
