Translating Photoacoustic Imaging Advances into Theranostic Impacts

Our research interest is in photoacoustic and optical imaging technologies in life sciences, especially in functional brain imaging and early cancer theranostics.

Our work centers on developing novel photoacoustic technologies and translating the laboratory imaging advances into diagnostic and therapeutic applications for a broad range of diseases.
