More Info: In Professor Mycek's Biomedical Optical Diagnostics Laboratory their objective is to improve human health through research and education in Biomedical Optics. Dr. Mycek's translational ("bench to bedside") research program in Biomedical Optics involves developing and applying methods of optical science and engineering to quantitatively probe living cells and tissues, with the goal of impacting patient care via the development of non- and minimally-invasive biomedical optical diagnostic technologies. The research strategy employed includes optical molecular imaging, clinical optical diagnostics, and computational modeling, with diverse applications including early cancer detection, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. The Biomedical Optical Diagnostics Laboratory in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan has both the infrastructure and the multi-disciplinary expertise to permit this general approach.
Research Areas: Biomedical Computation and Modeling, Biomedical Optics, Functional and Molecular Imaging, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.
