Reinier Hernandez

Assistant Professor of Medical Physics and Radiology

Madison, WI

How does this work?

I am an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Medical Physics and Radiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My scientific background amalgamates knowledge of radiochemistry, molecular imaging, radionuclide therapy, and radiation immuno-oncology. My research focuses on the design and implementation of novel radiotracers and radioanalytical techniques to answer biological questions about cancer and other diseases. I am also interested in the development and clinical translation of radiopharmaceutical agents for cancer theranostic. I am particularly intrigued by the potential of these radiopharmaceutical agents to modulate the immune microenvironment of tumors and potentiate the anti-tumor effects of immunotherapies. A third area of focus of my research is the synthesis and evaluation of the next generation of tumor-selective Boron and Gadolinium compounds for neutron capture therapy. I possess strong scientific communication and publication records, with more than 50 peer-reviewed publications and a similar number of scientific abstracts.
