Non-invasive detection of breast cancer earns PhD student dissertation award

University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa PhD candidate Lambert Leong has discovered a novel way to detect cancer and cancer risk using non-invasive medical techniques. The molecular bioscience and bioengineering major is leveraging medical imaging techniques with advanced machine learning and AI to investigate biomarkers of cancer, specifically for breast cancer, the leading cause of mortality against women.

I am honored and humbled to receive this award, and credit must be given to my family, friends, labmates and advisor. Specifically, the University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center, the molecular bioscience and bioengineering department, and Shepherd Research Lab played an integral part in my success
