Dr. Shim has a diverse range of expertise in MR spectroscopy, PET chemistry, cancer biology, and pharmacology. Her research focuses on chemokine CXCR12 and its receptor CXCR4 in cancer invasion/metastasis, and she has led an interdisciplinary research team to discover a series of diverse, potent anti-CXCR4 molecules. In addition, her research team has developed an advanced MRSI technique combined with a multi-modality imaging platform to assess how glioblastomas are responding to therapies by quantitatively measuring metabolic processes.
