Associate Professor, Nuclear Medicine Chief, Dept of Radiology, UCSF
Miguel Hernandez Pampaloni, MD, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Radiology and Medicine and the Chief of Nuclear Medicine in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Pampaloni is responsible for all clinical, administrative, and research coordination, performance and supervision of diagnostic and therapeutic studies within the section. Dr. Pampaloni earned his PhD in Radiological Sciences from the Universidad Complutense School of Medicine in Madrid, Spain, and he obtained his MD from the Universidad Complutense School of Medicine. Dr. Pampaloni completed a residency in Nuclear Medicine at the San Carlos Hospital in Madrid, Spain, and he completed a residency in Nuclear Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Dr. Pampaloni was a postdoctoral fellow in Cardiovascular Nuclear Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and he joined the UCSF Nuclear Medicine Section as an Assistant Professor in 2009. Dr. Pampaloni is an active member of the Hellen Diller Cancer Center, including being a member of the Cutaneuous Oncology Site Committee, the Development Therapeutics Group and the Hematology Group.
Dr. Pampaloni has two main research interests: applications of molecular imaging into the cardiovascular field and oncology. He is interested in assessing the preclinical pathophysiological changes in the inflammatory process at the base of the coronary artery disease and the mechanism controlling the vascular proliferation in metastatic solid tumors by the development of noninvasive imaging probes. As part of vascular biology characteristics, he is interested in applying new developed radioligands to target specific processes in the angiogenesis of cancer. In addition, he is developing new imaging strategies to assess the immune activation in the setting of therapy response.
Dr. Pampaloni has written over 80 peer reviewed articles, 6 book chapters, 100 abstracts.
