Surgical Planning Laboratory

Jenny Tam Ph.D.

Jenny joined the Conjugate & Medicinal Chemistry Lab in the Department of Radiology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Harvard Medical School (HMS) in 2007. From 2005 to 2007 worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Center for Molecular Imaging Research (CMIR) in the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), HMS developing multimodal protease activatable imaging probes. In addition, she studied multi-spectral imaging techniques to differentiate signals from overlapping optical channels. She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Tufts University in 2005 and a B.S. in Computer Science and Biochemistry from Washington University in St. Louis. As a Ph.D. candidate, Jenny focused her research on optical fiber-based applications such as optical tweezer arrays and bio-sensor and vapor-detection arrays. At FMIC, she will combine her interests in probe design and synthesis and optics engineering to develop imaging agents and micro- and nano-endoscopy technology for the study of diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
