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, associate professor of mechanical engineering (adjunct in laboratory medicine & pathology, and bioengineering) at the University of Washington.
We are recruiting postdocs and graduate students!
