Overview of My Research

Dr. J. James Frost received his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from Washington University; his Ph.D. degree is in nuclear and radiochemistry. He also obtained an M.B.A. degree from John Hopkins University.  Currently, Dr. Frost is President of BioMolecular Imaging and Retired Professor at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Department of Radiology.

Dr. J. James Frost's scientific interests and training started with chemistry at Tulsa University and then at Washington University in Saint Louis. The development of positron emission tomography was just beginning at Washington University when Dr. J. James Frost began his undergraduate studies in the late 1960s.

Dr. J. James Frost's focus in chemistry was nuclear and radiochemistry, which involved instruction in nuclear structure, quantum mechanics, and higher mathematics. Dr. J. James Frost's areas of focus involve fundamental symmetries and broken symmetries that are the basis of many scientific theories and which pervade the natural world.

"This early exposure and training became reanimated when I conceived and wrote a scientific paper in 2018 on symmetry and symmetry-breaking in cancer " ...a belated demonstration of foundational qualities of chemistry.



Research involves constant investigating and redesigning of the scientific questions posed. The strength of my research lies in the breadth and depth of the experimental and statistical approaches I utilize in understanding the mechanisms that drive the systems I am studying.
