    Project Summary

 

pteyeMy research at Vanderbilt Biophotonics Center revolves on optimizing and evaluating optical techniques such as NIR autofluorescence detection and Raman Spectroscopy for surgical guidance and disease diagnostics. I am currently focused on clinical translation of devices based on near infrared autofluorescence (NIRAF) detection for identifying parathyroid glands in real-time during endocrine surgery. I closely work with Dr. Carmen C. Solorzano and Dr. Naira Baregamian from VUMC for this particular project. In addition, I am also involved in performing detailed device testing and evaluation on the ability of Raman spectroscopy for breast cancer related applications.
