Our lab is fascinated by the nature of light and tries to harness its power to devise novel technology for biological research and clinical medicine. We focus on developing imaging modalities to map properties that are difficult or impossible to measure with traditional techniques but with important biomedical applications. In doing this, we cover all stages of the translational spectrum: we study what light is; we try to understand its interaction with tissue, cells, and biomaterials; we develop advanced optical technology; we build instruments; and, we use our instruments for biological research and in clinical trials.
Will study metastatic cell properties in collaboration with Dr. Kandice Tanner at NIH

Jitao does not seem worried about it….
Adaptive optics for Brillouin microscopy
The grant will fund cornea mechanical analysis in collaboration with Dr. Randleman @ USC and Dr. Sinha Roy @Narayana Nethralaya Foundation.
Will go to ARVO in Hawaii and present his CXL work
Shaffer's award will fund investigation in the mechanics of optic nerve degeneration
E che eleganza! Congrats Tony!
Plenoptic imaging in collaboration with University of Bari. Congrats Milena and Francesco
First 3D characterization of accelerated crosslinking. Congrats Josh! Paper #50 !!!!!
The collaboration with Martin lab (Medical School) and Jewell lab (BIOE) will characterize the mechanics of non-adherent tumor cells.
Destination MIT !
