Dr. Ella Jones has over 12 years of research experience in the private sector pioneering the development of targeted molecules for cancer imaging. At UCSF, Dr. Jones integrated cell biology, protein engineering and synthetic chemistry to develop new reporter systems for in vivo imaging of disease biomarkers. She has been funded by NIH/NCI as a PI and has successfully produced various probes for preclinical and clinical use in optical and nuclear imaging. Her major contributions include the development of COX sensitive probe for breast cancer premalignancy and the prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) targeting probe for prostate cancer.
More recently, Dr. Jones has taken a new career path focusing on translational breast cancer research. Her current research focuses on the evaluation of normal breast tissues quantified by MR imaging markers as potential independent breast cancer risk factors. Dr. Jones' vast experience in all modalities of imaging spans from the preclinical to the clinical space. In particular, her experience in PET and MR imaging well positions her to expand her research in the emerging field of hybrid PET/MRI for breast cancer characterization.
