Welcome to the Biomedical Photonics Center at Vanderbilt University!
The mission of the Vanderbilt Biophotonics Center (VBC) is to establish a trans-institutional initiative in biophotonics research, technology development and education at Vanderbilt University. The center spans across multiple schools (Engineering, Medicine and Arts & Science) and interfaces with existing centers and institutes (VICC, VINSE, VUIIS, VBI, VIIBRE, ViSE) while being anchored in Engineering. The center is focused on targeted educational programs for medical residents, fellows as well as graduate and undergraduate students and provides opportunities for learning for high schools students interested in this area. The research mission is centered around three main areas:
- Cancer photonics
- Multiscale photonics
