Welcome to Biothermal Cancer Detection Research Group

The Biothermal Cancer Detection Research Lab is located in the Discovery Park, University of North Texas, Denton and is directed by Dr. Tae-Youl Choi and Dr. Denise Perry Simmons. Our research is focused on cellular level thermal characterization to understand the pathogenesis of the disease and translational implications. We apply principles of materials science such as thermodynamics and heat transfer to human cells, considering “the cell as a material” combined with the biological sciences, such as the cell cycle.
