Optical Bioimaging Lab

We investigate healthy and diseased human tissues using light.

Explore more about our multidisciplinary research in brain imaging and tissue oxygenation.

Brain Imaging

We measure cortical hemodynamics using near infrared spectroscopy to understand how the brain functions.

Tissue Oximetry

We measure tissue oxygenation and blood perfusion with optical instruments and wearable sensors to understand human physiology and detect diseases
