Images acquired by Assistant Professor Yongjian Liu have been chosen for this year’s NCI Cancer Close-up project.  They illustrate PET/CT imaging showing the tumor accumulation of DAPTA peptide functionalized, 64Cu doped gold nanocluster (64Cu-AuNCs-DAPTA) imaging CCR5 receptor in a triple negative breast cancer patient derived xenograph mouse model. The PET image was acquired at 24 h post intravenous injection.
