The molecular biophotonics lab develops optical-imaging solutions for improved disease management. In particular, we are developing custom optical-sectioning (3D) microscopy devices and machine-learning analysis strategies for early cancer detection, improved diagnosis/grading of tumors, and surgical guidance. These projects leverage our multidisciplinary expertise in biomedical optics, machine learning, spectroscopy, molecular imaging, mechanical and electrical instrumentation, contrast agents, and preclinical/clinical translation.
The lab is directed by Dr. Jonathan Liu at the University of Washington, professor of mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and the department of laboratory medicine & pathology within the UW school of medicine.
We are recruiting postdocs and graduate students! [PDF of postdoc ad]
