Carol Heckman is an expert on pre-neoplasia and has published over 30 papers on this subject. She developed optical and computational methods for cell feature analysis and has applied these methods to distinguishing the phenotypes of normal and cancer cells.These features are the basis of an assay to flag chemicals of interest for drug development and target drugs to specific diseases. Her current work is on scaffolds through which cells recognize their microenvironment and specifically on the combinatorial aspects of FC composition and dynamics. She is the Director of the Center for Microscopy & Microanalysis at Bowling Green State University.
