Project Description

Imaging and Sensing Tissues with Laser Light

The objective of this project is to bring biophotonics technology developed in our laboratory to solving healthcare challenges. As way of example, we are currently working on measuring the elastic properties of the skin, as well as corneal and brain tissues using optical imaging; we are also working on brain imaging using a combination of optical imaging and fluorescence. All the projects involve strong collaborations with faculty and staff members over the medical center. This project may be especially attractive for a student in BME or Physics pursuing a minor in optics.
