- Sep. 2015
- Mr. Mingming Chen joined our group as an exchange student. Welcome onboard!
- Our lab receives a R15 grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) to develop optogenetic pacing technologies for fruit flies!
- Our lab, together with Prof. Yevgeny Berdichevsky's lab at Lehigh, receives a R21 grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) to develop high-speed OCT technologies to image neuron activities!
We are interested in developing novel optical imaging technologies for biomedical applications, especially in developing optical coherence tomography (OCT) and microscopy (OCM) technologies to perform "optical biopsy" and generate 3D in situ images of tissue morphology, function and pathological status in real-time without the need to remove and process specimens. We are also interested in applying these technologies to a variety of biological and clinical applications, including cancer research, neuroscience, developmental biology and tissue engineering.
- Space-division multiplexing optical coherence tomography (SDM-OCT).
- Molecular-targeted OCT and OCM for cancer detection.
- OCT and OCM Imaging in Developmental Biology.
- 3D OCT imaging of Brain Functions.
- Evaluation of neuronal injury induced by spontaneous seizure in rat's hippocampus using optical coherence microscopy (OCM).
- Label-free evaluation of angiogenic sprouting in microengineered devices using ultra-high resolution optical coherence tomography.
