We aim to develop activatable imaging probes of important biological redox species (e.g. H2O2, GSH) for photoacoustic imaging. The non-invasive visualisation of these species could help to shine light on the complex redox biology in cancer and inflammation in real time and thus could provide a tool for early cancer detection, indicate prognosis and give an early readout of treatment response.
