Seth Perry - Current Research

Second Harmonic Generation in tumors

Tumor metastasis is a critical event in breast cancer progression, hence novel approaches to predict and prevent metastasis would be of great clinical value. We and others have recently found that a novel property within tumors - the extent and nature of the ordering of collagen fibers - has significant influence on the process of tumor metastasis.This property can be studied via an optical process called Second Harmonic Generation (SHG).
