Science & Technology Centers Program Lecture Series: Center for Biophotonics

The Application of Photon-Based Technologies to the Life Sciences

December 14, 2010 2:00 PM  to 
December 14, 2010 3:00 PM
Stafford I, Room 110

Dennis Matthews, Director of Center for Biophotonics, will provide an overview of the science, technology and innovation accomplishments of the Center for Biophotonics, an NSF Science and Technology Center headquartered at UC Davis. Signature projects include development and application of the first wide-field, super-resolution microscope, now marketed by Applied Precision Inc; flash x-ray imaging of the structure of biomolecules using the Linac Coherent Light Source at Stanford; development of Raman spectroscopic techniques for cell-sorting and drug testing; cell phone-based spectroscopy and microscopy for telemedicine; creation of a Point-of-Care Technology Center for rapid portable assays for infectious disease; fluorescence lifetime-based tumor margin detection; UV and IR endoscope development for diagnosis of bladder or colon cancer; and creation of the Biophotonics4Life International Consortium and the Biophotonicsworld.org knowledge bank. All these projects address the development of biophotonics tools applied to major challenges defined by the end user. This talk will also briefly describe future plans for research and the creation of an Institute for Biophotonics Innovation.
