Breast cancer is devastating and affects many women. Dr. Greg Mowry and D. Deepa (shown at right in the lab) are part of a research team working with the Mechanical Engineering Department at University of Minnesota on breast cancer surgery. The goal of the research is to evaluate the feasibility of conducting in situ MRI guided, minimally invasive laser surgery to remove breast tumors in breast cancer patients. With this method we hope to extract breast tumors with intact borders and no leakage of tumor cells to the lymphatic and circulation system. We also hope to minimize both the surgical procedure and the recovery process. Deepa is a 4-year Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota while Dr. Greg Mowry is an assistant professor in the School of Engineering at the University of St. Thomas.
