The research focus in our laboratory is to push forward the technologies of sensitive optical detection and imaging systems and utilize these systems to aid biomedical research and develop new diagnostic tools. The long-term objective is to develop minimally invasive diagnostic tools for early detection of disease such as cancer. Areas of research in our laboratory include:
Development of novel optical spectroscopy and imaging instruments for biomedical applications, especially diagnosis of cancer at early stages.
Development of nanoparticles as contrast agents that can provide adequate optical signal and specificity to certain disease or target biomelocules.
Development of biochips combining optical sensing techniques and micro-/nano-fluidics for sensitive detection of biomolecules such as proteins. The long term goal is to develop high-throughput, cost-effective biosensors that can aid diagnosis of disease.
Experimental studies to measure optical properties such as scattering, absorption and fluorescence of tissues and cells and analyze their relationships to the structure, biochemical constituents and functions of the tissues and cells.
Computational simulation to facilitate interpretation of the experimental results and optimization of the methodology to differentiate normal tissue from the diseased.
