Faculty Members

The Biophotonics Center at Vanderbilt University works closely with the School of Engineering, the School of Medicine and the College of Arts and Science. In this way, fundamental discovery and research complements our clinical research and commercial translation of optical technologies to improve patient care.  Numerous faculty are currently engaged in biophotonics research. Some of these researchers utilize optical techniques to address specific questions in their research while others are photonics researchers themselves, and still others are clinical collaborators vested in biomedical photonics applications.
