Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States killing 585,000 Americans every year.
Susann Brady-Kalnay, a cancer biologist at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio wants to change that.

“What happens now with cancer patients is they come in when they have symptoms, and it’s almost too late. The cancer has spread all over their body and caused symptoms,” said Brady-Kalnay.
She wants to catch cancer before symptoms start, using molecular imaging.
Molecular imaging means that you're making an imaging agent that actually detects a specific event.
