Imaging and Biophotonics

Biophotonics research focuses on the development of optical imaging and sensing technologies to study cell and tissue structure and function at microscopic and nanoscopic scales.

These new technologies and their applications include the discovery of cellular nanoscale alterations in diseases such as early carcinogenesis, fiber-optic devices for cancer diagnosis, molecular imaging including imaging of microcirculation, photo-acoustic tomography and microscopy for high-resolution deep tissue imaging, multimodal microscopy, non-linear microscopy, computational biophotonics, and the fundamental investigation of light propagation and scattering in living tissue.

RESEARCH AREAS

The research spans from new technology development to the application of these techniques to address crucial problems in fundamental biology and clinical applications.
