Wawrzyniec Dobrucki

Assistant Professor, Bioengineering

Wawrzyniec Dobrucki, PhD, received his PhD in Chemistry from Ohio University, Athens, OH in 2003, and a joint MSc degree in Bioengineering from Technical University of Wroclaw, Poland, and Technical University of Hamburg, Germany. Before joining the Department of Bioengineering as tenure-track faculty in 2013, Prof. Dobrucki was a junior faculty member at Yale University School of Medicine and Senior Research Scientist at Beckman Institute where he directed the Molecular Imaging Laboratory at the Biomedical Imaging Center.

Dobrucki’s research develops integrated imaging approaches to noninvasively monitor and track physiologic processes within tumor microenvironment including tumor growth, angiogenesis, vascular remodeling, and expression of unique biochemical signatures of the neoplastic process using in vivo functional and anatomical imaging modalities including SPECT/PET, optical and X-ray CT, respectively. Such imaging strategies will eventually lead to individualized programs for disease prevention through advanced diagnosis, risk stratification and targeted therapies resulting in more successful and efficient health care.
