Natalie J. Serkova
Natalie J. Serkova received her graduate training (M.D. and Ph.D. degrees) at the University of Bremen, Bremen, Germany, and Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, Hannover, Germany, and postdoctoral training at the University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA, and Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA. Natalie J. Serkova serves as an Associate Professor of anesthesiology at the University of Colorado Hospital, Aurora, CO, USA; she also holds faculty positions at the Departments of Radiology and Pharmacology. She is involved in basic and translational research as well as clinical trials utilizing imaging (MRI, PET, and CT) 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 over 100 of peer‐reviewed publications in the area of functional metabolic and imaging biomarkers for therapy response. Serkova provided her scientific expertise nationwide to her collaborators in the area of NMR‐based metabolomics, all aspects of noninvasive animal imaging, and translation of preclinical biomarker and imaging protocols into clinical imaging‐based studies. Her particular interest is in using iron oxide nanoparticles for noninvasive MRI on inflammation.
