Natalie J. Serkova
Natalie J. Serkova serves as an Associate Professor of anesthesiology at the University of Colorado Hospital; she also holds faculty positions in the Departments of Radiology and Pharmacology. She received her graduate training (M.D., Ph.D.) at the University of Bremen and Medizinische Hochschule Hannover (Germany) and post-doctoral training at the University of California, San Francisco, Calif, USA. She is involved in basic and translational research as well as clinical trials utilizing imaging and metabolomics end points for inflammation, drug toxicity, cancer detection, staging and therapy response. Serkova is experienced in the field of NMR-based metabolomics and functional imaging, to predict cancer response to novel signal transduction inhibitors. She has a number of peer-reviewed publications in the area of functional metabolic and imaging biomarkers for therapy response (see below). Serkova provided her scientific expertise nationwide to her collaborators in the area of NMR-based metabolomics, all aspects of noninvasive animal imaging as well as translation of preclinical biomarker and imaging protocols into clinical imaging-based studies.
