Bernadette Marquez-Nostra received her B.S. in Biochemistry from California State University, Fullerton and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Davis. She conducted her postdoctoral research in Radiochemistry and cancer imaging at Washington University in St. Louis and at UAB. She obtained her first faculty appointment as assistant professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at Yale University. She joins UAB as associate professor of Radiology in 2023.

Dr. Marquez-Nostra's research focuses on predicting and monitoring response to targeted treatments in various types of cancer. This translational research uses novel imaging probes and/or imaging strategies noninvasively in animal models of cancer. Her goals are to identify novel biomarkers, develop new imaging agents, and to translate these imaging tools to clinical research. She mentors her trainees to use interdisciplinary methods (eg., bioconjugation, radiochemistry, biochemistry, immunobiology) to accomplish these goals and to become independent scientists.
