Spectroscopic Imaging Laboratory

The Spectroscopic Imaging Laboratory at University of Kentucky is dedicated to develop novel optical methods to advance translational cancer research. The central focus of the group’s research is to develop optical imaging tools for biomedical applications related to tumor metabolism, hypoxia and angiogenesis. Current projects include the following topics.

  • Development of optical platforms including spectroscopy and microscopy
  • Computer simulation of light transport in tissue
  • Cancer therapies prediction and evaluation
  • Cancer metabolism pathway reprogramming

Our lab has openings for students.  For more details, see Openings
