The goal of our research program is to improve our biochemical understanding of cancer metabolism and use metabolic changes to develop imaging agents for diagnosis and treatment. Our work is focused on novel approaches including hyperpolarized magnetic resonance (MR) that allows us to create non-invasive MR contrast agents with dramatically increased signal intensity. We develop these agents and approaches in the preclinical setting for rapid translation to the clinic, allowing us to observe metabolism as it happens.

Disclosures

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.

Kayvan R. Keshari discloses the following relationships and financial interests:

  • Bruker BioSpin GmbH
    Provision of Services (uncompensated)
  • GreatPoint Ventures
    Provision of Services
  • nVision Imaging Technologies
    Ownership / Equity Interests; Provision of Services

The information published here is for a specific annual disclosure period. There may be differences between information on this and other public sites as a result of different reporting periods and/or the various ways relationships and financial interests are categorized by organizations that publish such data.


This page and data include information for a specific MSK annual disclosure period (January 1, 2019 through disclosure submission in spring 2020). This data reflects interests that may or may not still exist. This data is updated annually.
