About the Editors

Renata Pasqualini, Ph.D., is the Buchanan & Seeger Professor of Medicine and Cancer Biology at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. She is an internationally recognized expert in vascular biology, metastasis, and angiogenesis. Dr. Pasqualini originally co-developed in vivo phage display, which enables combinatorial mapping of tissue and disease-specific molecular addresses in vivo, allowing for the development of ligand-directed targeted delivery of therapeutic and imaging agents.

Wadih Arap, M.D., Ph.D., is the Stringer Professor of Medicine and Cancer Biology and serves as an Attending Physician and Deputy Chairman of the Department of Genitourinary Medical Oncology at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. He is also a member of the Board of Scientific Counselors of the National Cancer Institute.
